Welcome to Mac House
My name is Lynne Wright and I am the Operations Manager here at Mac House. We know that because you are here, or about to arrive, you will have a child receiving treatment at the amazing facility that is Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and that this is likely to be a stressful time for your family. Ronald McDonald House, Liverpool, is a totally independent charity which sits proudly in the grounds of Alder Hey. We provide the families who stay with us with a home away from home in ‘the house that love built.’ Those are not just words, but our ethos, and this part of our website is designed to help you find out everything you need to know about staying with us. Details you may need include:
What happens when you first arrive
Day to day life in the House
Information about using the facilities here like the communal kitchen and dining areas, laundry, lounges, and your room
Checking out of the house when you are leaving
You will see that there are some basic guidelines, and a few very important “rules” that we ask you to follow. Mac House is a very warm, welcoming and relaxed place to be, and we appreciate that this may of course be a difficult time for you and your family.
Mac House isn’t a hotel, it’s your home while you stay with us. We are a home away from home and a family orientated place where you can stay close to your child whilst they are in hospital, but also take some time for yourself, rest and be secure in the knowledge that the phone in your room links directly to the ward where your child is being treated, and you are only minutes away from their bedside.
Families support each other here, and our small but amazing team of staff and volunteers will do all we can to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible.
Please take some time to read through our ‘Everything you need to know about staying with us’ page which is a comprehensive guide to staying at Mac House, written in the style of ‘Frequently Asked Questions.’
If you are already staying with us and have any questions at all please visit our reception area and the team will be there to help you, or if you are arriving soon and have an enquiry please call us on 0151 252 5869
