When a child is diagnosed with a chronic, serious or life-threatening illness, we are here to support the entire family.
Our expert care can significantly improve a young patient’s quality of life, while offering emotional support and other vital help to the family.
Children, from newborns to teens, with life-limiting conditions will continue to receive all curative and other medical treatments while cared for by Hospice by the Bay’s specially trained pediatric team.
Our team includes
- Hospice Physicians
- Pediatric Nurses
- Social Workers
- Hospice Aides
- Spiritual Support Counselors
Working with parents or guardians and a family’s own physician, our staff creates a plan of care unique to each child and family. We discuss care and treatment options with parents so they can make informed decisions.
Grief counseling is also available to parents and family members of all ages.
Perinatal and Neonatal Care
Depending on our patients’ needs, we offer care right at home. We can also visit them in a hospital or care facility. For parents coping with a high-risk pregnancy, or giving birth to a baby who will live only a short time, our team can help with perinatal and neonatal care and a plan for a peaceful delivery.
