Respite & Hospice Home for Kids

Our vision is to support children and young adults and their families in a community-based, home-like environment through holistic, essential care in coordinator with the child's medical team. We are dedicated to not only caring for children and young adults, but to provide a foundation of support and appropriate services to their families. Pediatric palliative care aims to enhance the quality of life of children and young people with life-limiting conditions. It focuses on managing pain and symptoms, offers emotional and spiritual support, provides respite care and supports the family through bereavement.
