The Children's Home: Providing Services with Options
Weaver, Robin
Exceptional Parent, v37 n3 p38-40 Mar 2007
This article describes how The Children's Home of Pittsburgh provides unique, specialized services for infants, children, and their families and seeks to improve not only the range of services available to these special patients, but also the way in which those services are provided. Their innovative healthcare programs have been developed in response to community needs. The Children's Home of Pittsburgh helps families at a time when they are most in need by providing options for care and accessibility to services not readily available in a more traditional hospital setting or through other community and in-home programs. Programs like a medical day care and family-oriented hospital care in a home-like setting serve many important goals: helping caregivers become knowledgeable and empowered, allowing kids to be kids in spite of medical challenges, helping families return to a sense of normalcy and routine, offering needed respite from daily care, focusing on keeping the family in tact through teaching and support, and much more.
