Children’s Home Healthcare Provides Parents with 24/7 Hospital-Grade Care at Home.
DALLAS, TX, March 15, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — You do anything and everything to hear your child laugh. Her smile lights up your world. You never stop trying to make your kiddo comfortable, happy, and healthy. When you have a child with medical complications, these goals become more difficult to attain on a daily basis. Parenting is difficult enough, but the added pressure of also being a medical caregiver, insurance advocate, and social worker is overwhelming. So, how do you know when it’s time to look into pediatric home health care?
Last week, you bought a package of socks because you ran out of clean socks, and that seemed easier than doing the mountain of laundry lurking in your closet. You have strong opinions about each frozen entree available at your grocery store. Maybe you snapped at Susan in accounting because she misplaced a fax and you have a limited amount of patience these days. Your life is fueled by caffeine and love for your child. You wonder if your friends still get together for book club (i.e., wine club) every month. It’s been so long since you’ve done something for yourself, you’ve kind of forgotten what you like to do. You are a parent of a medically delicate child, and routine trips to the pediatric urgent care facility have become your life.
If this sounds familiar, then it’s time for pediatric home services.
You may qualify for attendant care services, which can help with those tasks that are hard to accomplish on an ordinary day. Light housekeeping, meal preparation, and errands can be taken off of your plate so that you can focus on more important things (and stop snapping at Susan in accounting). Medical procedures and activities of daily living, which are difficult with medically complex children, can be performed by home health nurses who are specially trained to handle your child’s individual needs. Children’s Home Healthcare can help guide you to resources and programs which will give you the assistance you need.
As a parent of a medically fragile child, you live in a constant state of worry about a future emergency. Having qualified professionals who know your child well can help ease this anxiety. They are trained to recognize subtle changes that might indicate a health change is ahead, so that your kid is evaluated by her doctor before an emergency strikes. They know when a situation calls for over-the-counter medication versus a call to 911. Establishing care with pediatric home care will give you access to 24/7 pediatric urgent care, which will provide you with the best peace of mind. They will answer all questions, even if it’s about home remedies for cough.
Everyone needs a break sometimes, and you are no different. Take advantage of respite care for a few hours so that you can reclaim some time for yourself. Your child will be in competent, caring hands, so you’ll get to relax and not constantly worry for a change. Recharge your relationships, go to brunch with your mom, or even take an overnight vacation for a little rest and relaxation. As a primary caregiver, your emotional well-being is just as important. The better you feel, the better you can parent.

We specialize in caring for children.

Services in the home can span from visits for family support to 24-hour, home care for ventilator dependent children. There are children that depend on technology when receiving home care, but the vast majority does not.
Today, the range of services provided to children in our homes include not only rehabilitative care but also intravenous administration of antimicrobial medications and other medications including chemo, parenteral nutrition, nasogastric or enterostomy feedings, wound care, oxygen and mechanically assisted ventilation, chronic pain management, complex medical and surgical care, psychosocial support, respite, and hospice care.
