Supporting families on their path of quality of life.

Services: Palliative Care


 

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care centers on the child and family's goals for quality of life for the child.  An interdisciplinary team (which may include all or some of the following: physicians, nurses, social workers, case managers, educational specialists, child life specialists, chaplains, pharmacists, counselors, etc) helps the family and child determine a care plan to address their goals.

The Care plan is then integrated into care across all specialties and care providers with the Interdisciplinary team dedicated to communication and collaboration with all providers who care for the child.

Pain and Symptom management can be addressed holistically.

24/7 access to a palliative care doctor increases patient and family satisfaction and health outcomes and decreases visits to the emergency room and hospital (cutting down health care costs).

The IRS granted us 501.c.3 status!  We're very excited to have that step finished.  We are working on developing partnerships with area health care leaders and organizations.  We are developing our program design.

A donation of $21.75 will provide one day of service to a child with serious illness.  $152.25 will provide a week of service to that child, and $652.50 provides a month of services for that child!  We will save donations until we have enough money to start services in a sustainable way, for at least 150 children!  You can be a hero and partner with us to ensure these services reach the families as soon as possible!

With a recurring monthly donation of $10 or more, or a one-time donation over $100, you can work with our board president to make a commissioned watercolor painting for you.  We're always looking for input!  If you have ideas, would like to give advice for our program, or would like to partner with us, please contact us through our contact page.
