Programs are for critically ill children under the age of 18. Children must meet at least 2 of these 4 requirements:
1. Child is diagnosed with a critical, life-threatening illness
2. Child is frequently hospitalized
3. Child is receiving active treatment
4. Child is on hospice care
The child's primary physician and social worker should complete applications. When more than one diagnosis is involved, each attending physician must complete a medical statement.
Eligibility will be determined by the Foundation after physician's assessment. Applications will be reviewed and approved by the Program Director. Applications for critically ill children will be updated and reviewed every two years. Siblings may participate in programs until age 21. Patients will remain eligible for one year after last active treatment (Routine follow-ups excluded). Families are encouraged to participate in programs through the Better Together Program for one year after the loss of the child participating in programs. Patients must live in Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia or Washington, D.C., to participate in Casey Cares Programs.
