The Impact – Meet the Families
From the moment families walk into the ‘Laklinyeri’ Beach House they are immediately filled with the sense the home has been thoughtfully and lovingly created for them.
Please meet some of the families who have stayed at the Beach House and have shared what their time at the home meant.
The Petrick family
The Petrick family made the 1700km journey from Alice Springs to visit the Beach House. Justine and Clarke’s son, Xander, has cerebral palsy, meaning holidaying for the family has been difficult. This holiday has restored the Petrick’s positive attitude about being able to get out and about with Xander again.
The Self family
The Self family stayed at the Beach House over Christmas 2020. As well as families whose children have complex care needs, bereaved families are also welcome to stay at the Beach House. Jamie and Rebecca’s son, Felix, passed away at seven weeks old at the WCH. Their time at the Beach House allowed them to rest and heal following the loss of their son.
