What is Pediatric Comfort Care?
If your child is dealing with a life-limiting illness, we realize there are a number of things weighing heavily on the minds of both you and your loved ones. That’s why we provide quality care and expertise that give you the comfort and security to focus on what matters most- your child.
At Hands of Hope, we understand that it may be difficult to know when the time is right to consider pediatric comfort care for your child- that is why we are here. The Hands of Hope team consists of experts in pediatric comfort care who work to address the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of your child and your family for as long as you need it. Our child-centered and family-centered pediatric professionals work hard every day to maintain the health, comfort, and dignity of your child- but we don’t stop there. We work hard to identify your goals, walking hand-in-hand with you and your loved one every step of the way. Whether it is providing emotional support during difficult conversations, facilitating therapeutic activities involving all members of the family, providing grief and bereavement support, or offering assistance with connecting to community resources, we are here to help meet the unique needs of your family.
