Pediatrics and Maternal Child Health

Ensuring the proper growth and development of your child is a priority for you and the pediatric home care team can help. 

Your child may need care if they were born prematurely, have physical impairments or a chronic condition, or require therapy services. The team of nurses, therapists, and social workers  work closely with you and your physician in delivering care and support in the comfort of your home. Your team explains our services in a friendly, caring and gentle manner, encourages participation, and involves you in the medical decisions.

From Hospital to Home
We strive to make the transition from the hospital to home as seamless as possible. Our team teaches you about your child’s new or existing diagnosis, medications, treatments, equipment, nutrition, and safety and injury prevention.  We ensure you attain the knowledge, skills, and comfort necessary to meet the needs of your child and achieve your goals.

Your team provides skilled nursing assessments at home including evaluation of home safety, needs, capabilities, social welfare needs, and psychological dysfunction, and offers referrals, if needed.
