Kalparrin’s Visitor Lounge is located at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children in Subiaco, Western Australia. It’s in the Hay Street Building, near the Hydrotherapy Pool and the Occupational Therapy Department.
The Kalparrin Visitor Lounge is open to any family member of a child with special needs, regardless of degree of severity or type of impairment. This includes families whose children do not attend Princess Margaret Hospital.
Kalparrin’s Visitor Lounge provides a welcome haven for families needing a willing ear and friendly support, or just a place to relax between appointments, or a place for a break from the ward when your child is an in-patient. The Visitor Lounge has a phone link to Princess Margaret Hospital wards and clinics, so you can relax in the Kalparrin’s Visitor Lounge while on a break from a ward, and hospital staff can contact you there when you are needed.
Family Support Officers at Kalparrin understand the issues involved in caring for children with special needs and are available to speak with parents and other family members who come to the Kalparrin’s Visitor Lounge. We can offer support and provide information to assist in overcoming many of the daily difficulties that parents of children with special needs often experience.
