HOME-BASED PEDIATRIC PALLIATIVE CARE
What is home-based palliative care?
Children with serious or life-limiting illnesses qualify for specialized medical care and family support services in the comfort of their homes. 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 relieves children from physical and emotional symptoms, reduces parents' caregiving burden, and helps everyone cope. Services available to your child include nursing, art, music, and massage therapy. Counseling, social work support, and respite nursing benefit the whole family.
