The Pediatric Hospice Program is designed to meet the special needs of children with life-threatening conditions, as well as their families. The program provides symptom management and emotional support.
Some of the services provided include 24-hour, on-call availability of a hospice medical professional, care in the home, pain and symptom management, medications, equipment, and supplies, and more.
The Families in Need Program also provides immediate resources for necessities such as food, clothing, or paying utility bills. The program also allows dollars to be disbursed swiftly for urgent patient needs.
