Our residential stays offer a 3 and 4 night inpatient service to families in NSW experiencing significant parenting challenges. Unique to Karitane Carramar, we cater to children 0-4 years of age and support families in a holistic approach with facilities to accommodate families with two or more children and where your partner is encouraged to stay or visit as frequently as possible.
During your residential stay each family sets their own goals in consultation with the Karitane team who work in partnership with you to support and guide you through your identified parenting issues, working towards achievement of these goals. The Karitane team of Child and Family Health Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Paediatricians and Psychiatrists work in partnership with you to increase confidence; resolve concerns; and provide guidance and information on issues such as:
- Sleep and settling strategies
- Multiple babies
- Toddler behaviour
- Adjustment to parenting
- Anxiety and postnatal depression
