What The Residents Say

A selection of recent comments from Vizard House guests underlines the importance of being able to share difficult times with others in a similar position.

“A home away from home when you need one. You meet some wonderful people, all with the same intentions. Worrying about loved ones and praying for their recovery. Thankyou Elaine and Des, for making my stay in Melbourne a lot less stressful. Bless you all.” - Ian

“Vizard House is so special as it gives you a safe haven in the city and the company of others who are going through similar experiences. It just feels like home when you stay here and makes a difficult time easier to bear. Thankyou so much for this wonderful place.” - Wendy

“What a wonderful house you provide. Elaine is family for so many people. Thank you so much for the stay – just like home. It makes everybody so relieved to find an affordable place to stay.” - Mel

“This is such a blessing to have the support of Vizard House. It is warm and welcoming. Thank you so very much.” - Lyn

“My experience here at Vizard House is one to be remembered. I have met some great people who all have a story to tell of their loved ones and a hard journey ahead of them. The concept of this accommodation is just remarkable. When I needed to get out of the hospital I found myself saying “I’m just going home to the House for a little while.” That’s how comfortable it made me feel, here for four weeks from Tassie.” - Debbie

“I had to send you an enormous ‘Thank You’ for Jill’s recent stay at Vizard House.  Just knowing that she had a safe and wonderful home close by while Geoff was in hospital was an enormous relief not only for her, but for the whole family.” - Marlene


“Arriving alone in an unknown city from a country area was somewhat overwhelming, as was having to deal with the stress of my husband’s serious health issues.  To find accommodation in close proximity to the hospital and across the road from the tranquility of the Fitzroy Gardens was an absolute god-send. Also being able to talk to and share stories with others was very helpful emotionally.” - Heather 


“So very grateful for the warm and friendly “home” environment that is Vizard House.  Will miss my “house family” and know that being here has made a traumatic experience so much more bearable.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” - Karen
