Why family and siblings services?
Our heroes have many needs that take time and energy from parents and caregivers. As families navigate frequent appointments and hospitalizations, siblings and other family members may have a difficult time maintaining their own daily routine. Siblings can end up lagging behind in school due to frequent absences.
Hero's Path Palliative Care has a dedicated educational director who will help navigate the school systems for our patients and siblings, and help provide tutoring through a network of volunteers to ensure that children have the best opportunity to succeed at school. We also will provide fun, engaging family-centered activities at our facility to help families reconnect and build relationships and memories with each other. These activities will be designed to reduce stress and increase the strength of family relationships.
