Who Belongs at Your Child’s Place?

Life’s challenges are pronounced when your child has medically fragile needs. It’s hard to leave them, but it’s easy to trust Your Child’s Place. One visit, and you’ll know you’ve found a place like no other.

Our extended care center is open to children who:

  • are aged 6 weeks to 8 years of age with complex medical needs.

  • would qualify for in-home nursing services.

  • would need constant monitoring with a short-term acute need for outpatient rehabilitation or nursing care.

  • also have long-term medical needs including those who are ventilator-dependent.

  • need skilled respite care and who have either recently undergone surgery or who need short-term care in a supervised environment until they recover.
