Family units

Bravo to Westmead and to our own Carolin!

Westmead hospital eating disorder family units

May this model become STANDARD and expected.


  1. ''It's very scary for an eight- or nine-year-old to be away from home and in hospital for weeks and weeks..."

    Wow! I mean, I've heard other centers say that they''re seeing kids of similar ages, but it's still so shocking to hear of it. I think this is a great move by the hospital, but I wonder how feasible it is for working families.

  2. It was a wonderful morning attended by a small gathering of supporters to celebrate the opening of the new Butterfly Wing/Care By Parent. The rooms were bright and airy and full of "Butterflies", artworks painted by past patients.

    On behalf of future parents that will use the facility I would like to say thank-you to the major supporters of the project. Now families can be with their loved ones at a critical time during recovery from an Eating Disorder.
