The WCH Foundation Laklinyeri Beach House, located within the picturesque Encounter Lakes in Victor Harbor, is South Australia’s first purpose-built holiday home for families with children with complex medical needs or in palliative care.
Officially opened in July 2019, the Beach House is specifically designed, constructed and medically equipped, while the beautiful interiors, landscaping and sweeping views of the lake create a sense of calm and wellness.
Families' stays are funded through donations made to the WCH Foundation.

And when they occur in families, the whole family can get swept up in the heat of the moment. Infants and small children in the family are central to the whole scene. They observe what has happened, they “feel” what has happened, and it may seem they “caused” what happened even though the bigger person knows it really isn’t that small child’s fault.
This book is valuable to anyone living in a family with meltdowns and also to those working in educational settings who can use this book as a starting point for discussions about family emotions.
