HOME-BASED PEDIATRIC PALLIATIVE CARE
Meeting the unique needs of medically fragile children in the comfort of their home.
What is home-based palliative care?
Children with serious or life-limiting illness qualify for specialized medical care and family support services in the comfort of home. Palliative care provides relief from pain and symptoms for pediatric patients while assisting parents to address the emotional impacts of caring for a child with complex health needs. The goal is to improve the quality of life for the whole family.
Is palliative care right for your family?
Caring for a child with medical complexity or serious illness places incredible demands on a family. Home-based palliative care offers children relief from physical and emotional symptoms, reduces the caregiving burden for parents and helps everyone to cope. Services available to your child include nursing, art, music and massage therapy. Counseling, social work support and respite nursing benefits the whole family.
