Spending long hours in an uncomfortable hospital waiting room can add stress to an already emotionally draining experience when you’re visiting a sick child. Sometimes it helps to get away from it all, even if you’re just going down the hall.
When families have to travel far from home to obtain specialist medical care for their sick child, securing accommodation in an unfamiliar place adds to their stress and anxiety. It can also add enormous financial pressure to families already stretched to the limit by medical bills and associated costs.
Ronald McDonald House helps ease that pressure by providing accommodation to families at no cost near their child’s hospital for as long as they need it – days, weeks, months or years. Though there is no place like home, Ronald McDonald House strives to provide a safe and comfortable environment where the whole family can stay together for the duration of their child’s treatment.
Ronald McDonald House Perth is conveniently located approximately 5km from the Perth City Centre and within easy reach of local shopping, train and bus transport. The House is situated directly across the street from the new Perth Children’s Hospital in Nedlands.
