Children ages 6 weeks to 8 years of age with complex medical needs.

Children who would qualify for in-home nursing services.

Children who would need continuous or periodic monitoring with an acute need for outpatient rehabilitation or nursing care.

Children who need skilled respite care.

Children who also have long-term medical needs including those who:

- Need short-term care while in a supervised environment until they are fully recovered.
- Are ventilator-dependent.
- Recently underwent surgery.

What's the

Best Place to Start?

Start by contacting our Clinical Director, Rachel McIntyre, BSN, RN, to arrange a tour and interview. To meet our eligibility requirements, you must have a qualifying medical diagnosis(es) along with a medical prescription (Letter of Medical Necessity) from your child’s pediatrician. We’ll also need proof of the parent’s work or school status. While we occasionally work on a case-by-case basis with insurers, we always accept the insurers shown below. 

Your Child’s Place maintains contracts with most major insurance companies in the area. After obtaining the prescription from your child’s physician, Your Child’s Place will contact your insurance company about approval and payment. Your insurance company will determine the medical need for your child to attend Your Child’s Place.
