IN-HOSPITAL RESPITE FOR CAREGIVERS
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer free meals and snacks along with the conveniences of home to parents and caregivers just steps from a sick or injured child's bedside. Parents may take advantage of free meals and snacks, free laundry services, a hot shower, or a quiet place for contemplation in a non-medical setting while still on the hospital's pediatric floor.
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are located at Duke and WakeMed Children's Hospitals.
All Ronald McDonald House services are provided without charge. Families who are able may make a donation to Ronald McDonald House. No family is ever denied hospitality based on the ability to make a donation. Our community partners (like Credit Suisse!) make this possible!
Built with love, Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake offers a comforting home away from home and a community of support for seriously ill children and their families.
Ronald McDonald House keeps families close when children need them most!
