Twenty-four-hour Rest Centre for seriously ill children
The rest Centre is a twenty-four-hour place for seriously ill children. Here, our specialists provide those under our care with due social treatment while also helping their families. Parents have a good chance to have a proper rest while their children are taken good care of.
The hospital can care for 6 seriously ill children who are allowed to stay there with either of their parents. As a rule, it takes up to 30 days a year.
The Rest Centre is a joined project of Martha and Mary Convent and the ‘Miloserdie’ charity organization in which specialists provide children with due care. While the professionals take care of such children, their parents can have a rest. The Rest Centre helps children with incurable diseases, such as the Rett syndrome (RTT), muscular amyotrophy, cystic fibrosis, mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS), ICP and others.
The Rest Centre workers do their best to create a cosy homely atmosphere at the hospital. The place is often visited by our friends, hospital clowns and therapy dogs, so that the children were not bored and could regularly take part in various entertainment events.
