Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Medically complex children make up less than 1% of all pediatric patients and account for nearly 30% of healthcare expenditures. Local pediatricians are often unable to manage their complex health problems and the care of specialty physicians in the Bay Area is impeded by sheer distance from the family home. The result places a heavy caregiving burden on families. The American Academy of Pediatrics states, “Home health care is an effective venue of treatment for children with medical complexity who otherwise may experience frequent and/or prolonged hospitalizations.” Coastal Kids addresses this unmet health care in the central coast region. Further, in response to community demand, our licensed counselors are now expanding mild to moderate mental health counseling.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Home-based Pediatric 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.

People with disabilities
Families

Caring for a child with complex medical needs can be rewarding yet is often also strenuous and time-consuming. For many families, balancing the high demands of caring for their child, with work, and the needs of their other family members can become overwhelming. Coastal Kids Home Care shift nurses are available to help through offering in-home RN, LVN or CNA level care in shifts of 3-8 hours.

Children and youth
People with disabilities
Chronically ill people
Terminally ill people

Children (ages 0-21) with medical needs requiring nursing or therapy services may benefit from home healthcare. With a referral and physicians order, our pediatric nurses travel directly to your home to offer skilled services including blood draws, infusions, wound care, and medication administration. Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy support children to develop the strength and coordination to handle daily tasks independently.

Today, more than ever, children are experiencing anxiety and other mental health issues that affect their daily lives. For parents, learning to address their child’s complex emotions and behaviors can be confusing. Coastal Kids Home Care is here to help. At Coastal Kids Home Care, our counseling team believes that mental health plays a critical role in the overall well-being of children. We coordinate closely with physicians, parents and children to develop individualized goals of care. Together we identify the type of therapy most appropriate for your child’s situation and work in partnership with you to respond to their needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Coastal Kids' current goals are as follows:

1. Deliver excellent medical care to any medically fragile child living in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey, and San Benito Counties, as well as supportive counseling and social services for their parents and siblings.

2. Encourage referrals by cultivating partnerships with pediatricians, family practice physicians, specialists, medical groups, local hospitals, tertiary care facilities, and other community resources.

3. Address the need for in-home pediatric palliative and end-of-life care for terminal children residing in the agency's four-county service area.

4. Develop community support in all of the counties Coastal Kids serves to address the financial deficit in caring for children from low-income families.
