Caregivers can rest at Ronald McDonald House at NUH

SINGAPORE: Families with sick children at the National University Hospital can now seek respite at an overnight facility within the hospital — called the Ronald McDonald House.

It is the first such facility in Singapore that is open 24/7 and is a "home away from home" with the comfort and amenities of a homely environment.

The facility can house up to four families or a total of eight people at a time.

The hospital expects the Ronald McDonald House to be used by parents or caregivers with a child with cancer or trauma or undergoing organ transplant at the intensive care unit.

It hopes the facility can help support families during times when the child is sick.
