Coastal Kids Home Care specializes in caring for kids living with illness or disability where they most want to be - at home.
Coastal Kids Home Care is California’s only non-profit pediatric home health agency serving children in Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and San Benito Counties. For the last 15 years, we have improved the quality of life for children coping with injury, short-term illness, chronic conditions, developmental delays, and those facing the end-of-life.
What is pediatric home health care?
Our agency provides professional medical care - including nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy - directly in the homes of pediatric patients. Our agency coordinates with physicians to provide in-home treatments, manage pain and symptoms, monitor progress toward health objectives and offer 24/7 support to parents on caring for their children at home.
Who are our pediatric patients?
Any child with a medical diagnosis requiring in-home nursing or therapy is eligible. To provide care we require a referral and detailed physicians’ order. We coordinate regularly with local pediatricians, hospitals and pediatric specialty clinics at UCSF Benioff and Stanford Children’s Hospital. If you have additional questions on whether a child may be eligible please contact our knowledgeable administrative staff for more information here.
What are our Services?
Coastal Kids Home Care offers seamless transition from hospital to home. We offer 24/7 access to nursing support, hands on equipment training and medication management, at home care coordination, social service support and more.

Although the majority of the agency's patients are from families living at or below the poverty line, we are proud to say that Coastal Kids Home Care has never turned a child or family away for inability to pay—and we never want to. Thanks to our grants, event sponsorships, private donations, and tireless hours from staff, Coastal Kids has provided more than 70,000 in-home visits to more than 9,000 medically fragile children.
