Home care provides health-care services to help support your child at home. This may include:
- Nursing care for medication management
- Intravenous (IV) therapy
- Management of airway devices, like ventilators
- Bathing, toileting and dressing
- Home assessment to determine what equipment you may need
To find out what home care services may be available for your child, contact your local home care office. A coordinator will assess your child to determine their needs.
