Hospitals can be scary places for children, but nothing soothes them like their own bed and home. Give them the care and support they need in the place they love best.

Benefit from a much needed break

When experienced, loving professionals care for your child at home, you get a much-needed break so you can keep up with daily schedules, work obligations, and more.

Keep the whole family together

Maximize your time with your kids by keeping them all under one roof. Siblings will appreciate the attention you're free to give them and the chance to bond with their infirm brother or sister.

"My six-year-old daughter has Down Syndrome. Before I discovered Attending, I would go without sleep for days, and constantly worried that I wasn't able to be fully present and give her the care she needed because so much depended on me. When Attending stepped in, everything changed. My daughter is taken care of and happy. I can finally take better care of myself. It's been life-transforming."
—Cheryl M., mother of an Attending client

How can my child benefit from home care?

Having a child with a chronic health condition is not only a huge responsibility—it also leaves many parents stressed, exhausted, and isolated.

If your child is 18 or younger and has been diagnosed with a prolonged illness, a professional pediatric in-home caregiver can help give you much-needed support and rest, helping your child (and you) feel happier and healthier while improving their quality of life.

At Attending, we are not just caregivers. We're advocates, resources, and partners in your child's care, dedicated to making sure that your child has what they need to reach their full potential and thrive in the comfort of home.
