Caring for Babies and Children

Our children’s hospice program provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support for families whose children have been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition or who have died. Our skilled and compassionate team will walk alongside families throughout the journey of loss which is unique to everyone.

Who Can Benefit from Children's Hospice Care?

When your child has a terminal prognosis of six months or less, children’s hospice care might be right for them and your family. The goal of hospice care is to alleviate pain and improve quality of life and wellbeing. Our focus is to support, comfort and empower patients and their loved ones to approach death and dying according to their individual needs. Children and adolescents who are diagnosed with advanced  illnesses can still pursue curative treatments while on hospice. Additionally, Regional Hospice provides respite care for parents and caregivers, allowing them to take break from the demands of caregiving while having peace of mind that their child is lovingly supported by our professional team.
