What is pediatric hospice?

When children show signs of decline, hospice is another way of adding support to the family.  Unlike adult hospice, pediatric hospice services allow families to pursue curative treatment at the same time as comfort care.  We desire to support the child and family through careful planning and child/family centered goals at end of life.  Our facility can be another option for families and children who desire more medical support at the end of life than home options offer.

Many times, the hospital setting can be a traumatic place for children and families who need extra support, so having a home-like setting where special memories have been made with excellent, trained nursing and medical staff present can be a wonderful option for families at this difficult time.  Our staff will be trained in bereavement support so we can assist the child and family in a honoring, gentle way.

Latest updates:

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.
