Continuous accommodation for children and parents
Treatment of children is extremely hard and complex process and requires enormous physical and psychological strength and significant funds. Having family atmosphere around has proven to improve general health condition of a child and increase possibility for their healing.
Parents’ House was open in April 2016, close to Pediatric Clinic Jezero, in Sarajevo. It has 700m² of useful area, out of which 10 family suits with bathrooms, common kitchen and sitting area, multifunctional room with playroom, laundry room, roof terrace and maintained green area for relaxation and play. Parents’ House has an energy certificate A and uses solar power to heat water.
To sick children and their families, the Parents’ House offers a second home, family atmosphere, a place where they, at least for a second, can forget about the hospital treatments. More than 150 families stayed in the Parents’ House until now, which is around 80% of the usable capacity of the Parents’ House.
