live librarian help
Children with life-limiting illnesses are first and foremost children - children who want to play, laugh, learn and be home where they may be surrounded by family and friends. Hospice services and care enable the family to achieve this.
At Nationwide Children's Hospital Homecare, our mission is to return each child to a pain-free life as possible. The Hospice Program affirms the dignity of life. Our belief is that the quality of life is not determined by the quantity of one's days but by the way in which those days are lived. We have opportunities to enrich each day - physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
