Guidance for Parents

Tresillian QEII Short Stay Residential helps families needing a short-term intensive level of support in their parenting journey. Families live in at Tresillian for a 24hr/overnight admission program over 2-3 separate occasions with meals and accommodation provided. The overnight admission dates are booked 1-2 weeks apart. 

Our team includes experienced child & family health nurses, specialists in lactation, allied health clinicians 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. 

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.

Referral pathways following this program could include a 5 day/4 night Residential Service Program at a later date, our Day Services Program, or Universal Child & Family Health/MACH services in the community.

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
We arrived at Tresillian extremely sleep deprived and worked on strategies to get our baby to sleep on his own and steer my mental health onto the right path. It was worth it! And when you go home and continue with what you’ve been shown and your baby actually sleeps, you finally sleep too! Going to Tresillian was honestly the best thing we could have done. Not only does it improve your babies sleep patterns but your mental health too.
—  Kaelene,
We went to Tresillian when my first born was 11 months old. As he had not slept very well at all, this was a life changing experience. I am still not sure what "magic" happened that week but it was absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend Tresillian highly enough. If you and your family need help with learning about sleep for bubs, don't hesitate, just talk to this amazing organisation.
—  Emma,
