FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Admissions are generally covered by private health insurance though we encourage you to check with your individual health fund as to any out of pocket costs. An excess may be applicable depending on your policy and level of cover. As part of the pre-admission process, staff can also complete a fund check on your behalf.  

Our rooms are single, private rooms and so partners are unable to stay overnight. However we support your partner or other support person to spend time in the Centre and to attend the Partner and be included in learning the strategies tailored for you and your family. This will assist the family unit to work together to understand your individual program.

If you or any members of your family are currently suffering from these symptoms, we request that you do not come into the Centre.

At any time during your stay if you or your infant become physically unwell it is likely that you will be required to be discharged and return when you are well and a bed is available.

Our approach is based on the principles of responsive settling. Individual  strategies can differ for each infant taking into consideration their age, habits, physical and emotional histories. We use age appropriate routines and individualise to meet the needs of both parent and baby, and their particular situation.

Your partner or other support person is strongly encouraged to spend time in the Centre in order for them to also understand your program (please see 'Can My Partner Stay' above)

For visiting siblings, we recommend shorter, afternoon visits. The Centre can provide information on nearby local parks for any family outings should you wish. We discourage other visitors from coming into the Centre.

Parking is on-site and free, however please be aware parking is not monitored for security.

Our experienced catering team have created a dedicated breakfast, lunch and dinner menu for you to enjoy during your stay. There is a separate, age-appropriate menu for babies which includes purees for infants on first solids.

If you have any specific dietary requirements, please inform the staff prior to your admission.

We encourage all families to go out for a regular walk and outings. Near to the Hospital is a small local shopping centre, cafe and various parks. If you have an appointment that you are unable to cancel whilst you are attending the program, please discuss this with the staff prior to admission.

The Centre follows SIDS guidelines and does not allow co-sleeping or bed sharing. We help parents steer clear from unsafe sleep practices such as prone sleeping and ensure cot environments are safe.
