Pediatric Home Care in New Jersey
At TLC Companions Home Health Care we offer a full range of pediatric/child home healthcare, from sitter services to skilled nursing care. Caring for a child with special needs can be challenging and even stressful and at TLC our private duty pediatric nurses and aides make it possible for your child to receive the care they need, wherever they need it.
If your child is between the ages of 0 and 21 and has been diagnosed with a chronic health condition, pediatric private duty nursing may be the right service for you. Our professionals provide support with your child’s medical care, family education, advocacy and support focused on helping your child to feel healthier, happier, and more comfortable. At TLC Companions we are family centered, meaning you are involved in every aspect of care.
Our highly skilled team of nurses and aides empower your child with a medically complex condition to live a better life at home. We strive to meet your needs and incorporate your goals in developing and carrying out your child’s treatment plan. With care, compassion, and clinical excellence, we give each child the greatest opportunity to reach their optimal health and well-being.
Care typically lasts four to 24 hours a day with our registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and aides (who can perform personal care for children with disabilities and also perform light housekeeping and meal preparation as well as respite care to provide much-needed breaks for the family) focused on providing excellent short-term and long-term clinical care to medically fragile children.
PEDIATRIC PRIVATE DUTY NURSING – HOW DOES IT WORK:
FIRST STEP: Our Director of Nursing or one of our RN’s will come to your home to perform an initial assessment and fill out the required paperwork. This includes your Plan of Care, Medication Profile, Emergency Plan, and any other information that needs to be prepared.
SECOND STEP: Our Director of Nursing will select the TLC Companions RN, LPN and/or Certified Home Health Aide that will be the best fit for your child’s care.
THIRD STEP: A representative from TLC Companions office will contact you and provide you with a care schedule, complete with your nurses’ or aides names and the shifts assigned.
FOURTH STEP: The TLC employee will come to your home and carry out the plan of care, communicate with your physician when necessary, help show you how to care for your child, and assist you with your other medical care needs (RN and LPN only).
