Ronald McDonald Family Room
The Ronald McDonald House Family Room is provided by and funded by the Ronald McDonald House Auckland Trust. It is located within Starship on Level Three. It is a large day room with a stunning view over the harbour.
The Family Room on-site crisis accommodation is offered to parents whose children are in intensive care and high dependency units, when it is important to stay close by.
Light snacks and tea and coffee are available during the day. Light meals can be provided for families staying in the Family Room accommodation.
The Family Room is also a place for a quiet break from the wards for parents, caregivers and siblings of patients. Children have a dedicated space to play quietly with activities and toys.
The charge nurse on your ward will give you a referral card to the Family Room day lounge which is open from 8:00am to 7:00pm each day, seven days a week.
If you need an overnight stay as respite from the ward or even for a nap and hot shower during the day, ask your charge nurse for a referral. We may be able to arrange this service depending on our availabilities on the day.
