Better At Home Suite

The WellChild Better At Home Suite at Edge Hill University is the UK's first parent and carer training facility.

Better At Home Suite

In collaboration with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Edge Hill University, the ‘Better At Home’ Suite’ provides a safe place for families to learn and practice many of the skills they will need to care for their child at home – from managing their ventilation, to feeding them via a tube.

The aim is now to ensure that as many other families as possible across the UK have access to a similar training facility and plans are underway to support the development of new simulation suites.

The training has given us a bit of freedom and we're now more of a family again. We are quite happy to go out anywhere because we all know how to do a tracheostomy
