2/13/2017 11:48 AM
Today, RMHC Toronto officially opens its Family Room at Health Sciences North, providing a “home away from home” for families just steps away from the NEO Kids pediatrics and neonatal intensive care units where their child is being treated. The Family Room provides a welcoming and comforting environment where parents can rest and recharge away from the clinical environment of their child’s room. The Family Room includes a kitchenette stocked with snacks and beverages, a relaxing fireplace lounge with TVs, and two rest and respite areas, with a total of six recliners, where families can nap and sleep. Inspired by first-class airline lounges, the recliners have custom-built privacy screens to allow family members to rest without distraction. The Family Room is staffed from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, by RMHC Toronto volunteers, all from the Sudbury area. The recliners are available to families 24 hours a day.
