Charlie House is a family-centred charity and has incorporated a Family Suite on the first floor of our Specialist Support Centre. The family suite consists of 8 comfortable en-suite family bedrooms, an open plan lounge, kitchenette, dining area and a therapy room.
The 8 family bedrooms will be decorated and furnished to aid a relaxing stay, comfortable beds will allow mum and dad to get a great night’s sleep, safe in the knowledge that their child is being cared for around the clock by the Care Team downstairs. There will be plenty of storage, a small fridge, television and some rooms will have access to a balcony. Fluffy bathrobes and en-suite facilities will make the families feel at home, encouraging them to relax and enjoy their stay.
The open plan lounge-kitchenette-dining area offers the families a place to sit, chat with other parents and watch television away from the hustle and bustle of the main living areas. Families can either enjoy the meals provided, cook something of their own choice in the kitchenette or indulge in enjoying a rare night out to a local restaurant, cinema or theatre.
The ethos of our facility is for parents to relax and take some time out from the day-to-day medical care of their children, recharging their batteries. To support this, the family suite encompasses a therapy room, where complimentary therapies like a massage or a reiki session can be provided.
