RONALD MCDONALD FAMILY ROOM
A load of laundry. A place to rest. A feeling of home. These things seem impossible to a parent whose child is ill. Often, parents of hospitalized children cannot leave their child’s bedside to go home or to care for the rest of their family.
Ronald McDonald Family Room is an extension of the Ronald McDonald House program. A bit of home within the walls of McMaster Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald Family Room is a brief respite for families while remaining steps away from their child’s bedside.
The Family Room provides a retreat within the hospital where families and friends can spend quiet time together, engage in private conversations or reflection, or enjoy coffee and a snack while still being close to their child’s room.
