Things to Consider With Pediatric Home Care
When your child has complex medical needs, meeting their care needs can be overwhelming. As their parent, you are their main advocate and caregiver. However, many parents find it challenging to meet extra care needs for their children while also caring for any other children, holding down a job, or managing the other needs of the household.
Your pediatric home care professional serves as your lifeline when it comes to managing the needs of your child. However, it can be daunting to bring someone new into your home on a regular basis. It’s important to make sure everyone is on the same page. Address the following points with your pediatric home care nurse or therapist to make the transition as smooth as possible:
- Routine: We are here to make your lives easier. It’s important for your child’s routine to remain as consistent as possible. This includes wake-up times, bedtime routines, activities, and meal times. Discuss these routines with your nurse and include any medications and dosages as part of the conversation. Consider writing a schedule down to make the adjustment even easier.
- Your Child’s Likes and Dislikes: While our primary duties involve seeing to your child’s medical needs, we are also here to keep them comfortable and happy. Any information you can give about your child’s preferred foods, drinks, television programs, activities, books, etc. will be a huge help.
- Household Rules: Being on the same page when it comes to household rules will benefit everyone. If you have any preferences about how you would prefer our nurses interact with your family, let us know. We will work with you to arrive at a solution that meets your child’s needs and keeps everyone comfortable.
- Your Involvement: Hiring a pediatric home care service doesn’t mean that you need to give up all duties as a parent. Review with your caregiver and let us know which tasks you would prefer to do yourself. Do you enjoy handling the naptime or bedtime routine? Would you prefer to feed your child yourself? Are there other siblings you would like to play a role? We will work with you to create a plan that works for everyone.
