Pediatric private nursing and in-home therapy is a game-changer for parents and/or caregivers of a medically fragile child. It’s natural for those who care for a child to desire to give them the best quality of life possible. This is magnified when a child has a complex medical condition. Worrying about a child’s quality of health care, scheduling doctor appointments and therapy sessions can be intimidating and overwhelming. A great option to simplify these things is to have a pediatric private nurse and in-home therapy. This will reduce the number of times you’ll be required to leave the house for medical reasons, and your child will remain as comfortable as possible.

This is achieved through transitional care from the hospital to their home, specialized neonatal care, around the clock at home nursing, and pediatric in-home therapy including Physical (PT), Occupational (OT), and Speech (ST or SLP).
