Carousel – Specialized home care for infants, children, teens and young adults with serious illnesses

When your child is seriously ill, everything changes. You want the best for them, and you want your time together to be as good as possible. Care is a big responsibility and decisions can become more complicated.

You and your family don’t have to go through this alone. We can help make this difficult time easier. A range of home health care services are available for infants through young adults anytime following a diagnosis of a serious illness or life-limiting condition. Support also is provided to family members, including siblings.

Carousel offers pediatric supportive or palliative or hospice care, depending on your family’s needs and desires. Supportive care can be at any stage of serious illness and is available while receiving or seeking treatments to cure or slow the progress of the disease.

Hospice is a special type of palliative care for people of all ages who have life-limiting illnesses and who are focused on comfort. Both palliative and hospice care offer a team of specially trained nurses, social workers, chaplains, physicians and other therapists who address pain and other symptoms, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and families, and improve quality of life.

“Carousel has allowed us to revolve our lives around trips to the park and play dates rather than hospital, doctor and clinic visits.” – Becky Means, mother of a Carousel child

Carousel is made possible by the generosity donors and the dedication of many volunteers. You can help!
