My Nest is Best Program
My Nest is Best is a family-centered program for children with progressive, life-limiting conditions. It focuses on enabling children to continue living at home, in a comfortable place where they are surrounded by the people, pets, and environment that brings them security and joy.
Each child and family has a team of pediatric professionals that works together with the family and their physician to control their child’s pain and symptoms, while keeping them as alert as possible to enjoy each day with their loved ones.
Our Prenatal Hospice team helps parents experiencing the uncertainty of a high-risk pregnancy, or whose unborn child is expected to have a limited life-expectancy. Learn more about this program here.
