Based in two adjacent residential blocks in suburban Alice Springs, the Purple House is our headquarters and a home away from home for patients forced to relocate from remote communities for dialysis treatment. Patients can come in for a cuppa, to do their washing, see the GP, cook damper and kangaroo tails, or get some support.
The services provided at the Purple House include:
- Dialysis six days a week
- Social support services
- Primary health care and allied health services
- Chronic disease coordination
- Wellbeing activities
- Indigenous employment
And we try to have fun and look after each other along the way!
