Helping Families With Critically Ill Kids Enjoy Childhood
At Casey Cares, we know how difficult life can be for families with critically ill children. We help keep families' spirits high by arranging programming - whether it's a simple movie night and a fresh pair of pajamas or attending a major sporting event - Casey Cares makes life a lot better by adding a personal touch throughout the year and making lasting memories for families throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and portions of the Midwest.
Not once-a-lifetime or once-a-year, Casey Cares knows that the best palliative care comes from continuous, ongoing support. Casey Cares bi-monthly customized programs give families dozens of opportunities to create positive family memories. Many of our patients will be receiving active treatment for years, this impact is felt by siblings, parents and the community. Beginning as early as birth, we focus on the entire family, not simply the sick child.
For families whose faith, relationships, and pocketbooks have been stretched to their breaking points, these programs with a special touch will be the only break they have from hospital stays and doctors' visits for many. For some, it will be one of the last events they will attend with all members of their family present. While we cannot cure these children, we can create little moments and lasting memories.
