|Description and Service Details|
|Description (Service)||Ronald McDonald House Windsor provides a welcoming and secure home-away-from-home for families with seriously ill or injured children in need of medical care at Windsor Regional Hospital.
* A family can stay in one of our 5 private rooms, or 2 short term stay rooms, located on the third floor of Windsor Regional Hospital, Metropolitan Campus, for as long as their child requires medical care.
* Families are asked to pay just $12 a night (no family is ever turned away due to an inability to pay).
* A sibling or another family member may accompany the parents of the ill child pending room availability. (Room capacity varies from 2 - 4 per room depending on room available).
* Offers one bedroom per family.
* Anyone suffering from or who has recently been exposed to a communicable illness cannot be admitted (including family members with a cold or the flu). RMH stand by this policy to minimize the risk to children with weakened immune systems.
* A room at Ronald McDonald House Windsor is never a guarantee. Many of the families face longer stays than they had hoped and we allow all families to take things one day at a time.
* On any given day, we are not always certain which families may be checking out, and often check outs are postponed late in the day.
* Extreme weather will be considered if it is unsafe to travel and families are delayed in checking out, however weather cannot be the reason for a family referral.
