Ngala’s Residential Parenting Service

At Ngala, we understand that the early years for many families may be a challenging experience. Ngala’s Residential Parenting Service can work alongside you and your child’s individual needs, which might include your adjustment to parenting and your child’s unique developmental needs.

Our Residential Parenting Service includes Day Stays and Extended Stays and takes place at Ngala’s Private Hospital in the Perth suburb of Kensington. We believe this approach allows parents the time to learn and connect with their child in a safe and nurturing environment.

The service operates Monday to Friday and admissions may vary from one to four days. During this time our interdisciplinary team including Child Health Nurses, Midwives, Lactation Consultants, Mothercraft Nurses, Social Workers and Psychologists will work alongside you.

During your stay we will explore and be responsive to the individual and distinct needs of each family, which might include:

•understanding relationships within your family, past experiences and their impact, health and developmental issues;

•how you communicate and connect with your baby;

•building on your understanding of your baby’s needs;

•developing new parenting skills and knowledge about your baby and family;

•practicing and consolidating your skills with the help of staff support and role modelling;

•preparedness for going home; and

•individual consultations or facilitated groups with social work and/or psychology staff.

In both the Day Stay and Extended Stay services you will have your own bedrooms – one for parents and one for your child(ren). The children’s room will have a cot or bed depending on age and your request. Each nursery has a camera which enables us to watch and monitor your child during sleep and settling.

For more information on how to make a request for admission, please call the Ngala Parenting Line on 9368 9368.
