Paradise Kids Illness Support Holidays were established in April 2009, offering families from rural and remote areas, and other parts of Australia who have a child with a terminal or life-limiting illness an opportunity to enjoy a Gold Coast holiday from 5 to 7 days without the financial burden. During their stay, the child and the family are offered counselling and support to help them understand their feelings about the illness and to see possibilities in spite of their limitations.
The holiday offers a family...
- Support for the parents and siblings.
- Illness Support for the child with the illness.
- Activities for the family to participate in together.
The Paradise Kids Illness Support Family Holiday is held in our Living Well House a beautiful, relaxing coastal inspired home reflecting the Gold Coast ethos and lifestyle. The family will enjoy having time to experience the beauty of the Gold Coast, with its many recreational facilities. Illness Support Family Holiday's are made possible by generous organisations and community members. A Family Holiday is available once external donor funding has been received.
