Guidance for Parents

Tresillian’s Macksville Residential Service helps families needing a more intensive level of support in their parenting journey.   Families live in at Tresillian for 4-nights, 5-days with meals and accommodation provided.

Our team includes experienced child & family health nurses, specialists in lactation, psychologists, paediatricians, psychiatrists, and GP’s who work in partnership with you to help make sense of your child’s crying, sleep, feeding and behaviour. We aim to help you build a positive relationship with your child, giving you confidence and reassurance as you progress through your parenting journey. We can also support you with your own emotional well-being.

Partners are actively encouraged to participate during your stay.  Group education is also offered on a variety of parenting topics.

Cost - For the parent and child, fees are covered by Medicare and/or by your Private Health Insurance. For partners, a boarding fee per night applies to cover meals and accommodation.

For a Referral - Contact your local health professional or parenting support service or call the Tresillian Parent’s Help Line on FREECALL 1300 272 736.
