Guidance for Parents

Tresillian’s Nepean 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.

What our parents say
I would really like to pass on my thanks to all of the staff during my residential stay at Nepean! Everyone including the kitchen staff, nurses, GP, paediatrician and the psychologist. Thea has had a great day; she had a 1.5hr nap in her cot and was down for bed for the night at 6:30 and hasn’t made a peep! (This is a first in a long time!) Paying attention to her cues rather than going off a strict time schedule has really helped us. Hopefully we can continue using the skills we have learnt! Kindly (well rested) parents, Madi & Joey

Dear Tresillian family, I am so grateful and thankful to the team for helping me with my son’s sleep pattern. A child who wouldn’t go to bed before 9pm, whose Dad would have to rock for hours and hours, who would scream and cry and wake up every hour for breastfeed and throw his dummy, miss his afternoon nap….has now learnt how to sleep without breastfeeding and is so much more relaxed. I cannot express in words how happy I am to be in this situation. I feel more confident and less stressful. You are a blessing to me. All the staff members have been really sweet, caring and supporting. Thankyou to the kitchen staff as well for extra pasta for my son! I would definitely recommend seeking your support to my friends and families in dealing with situations like mine. I will continue the things I have learnt here at home. I know it will take time but I am positive that it will get better in the coming days. Kind regards & lots of love, from Ashim & Kirsty
