We believe that healing happens faster when families are able to stay together. The Ronald Mcdonald House Charities approached The Purple Society to construct studio apartments for families needing to travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. Nothing is scarier than not having mom, dad, and siblings close by for love and support. The Purple Apartments at Ronald McDonald House allow families to stay together while staying close by their hospitalized child.
Research shows that a family presence in the hospital helps children heal and cope better. Staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
