Transitions Kids – Hospice and Palliative Care

Transitions Kids offers various levels of pediatric care designed solely around the unique needs of children (perinatal for children with a potentially life-threatening diagnosis all the way up to age 18) facing life-limiting illness. The goal is to provide community based supportive care services for the child and family that are focused on enhancing quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain and distress.

Your Care Team

Your pediatric care team may include a doctor, nurse practitioner, nurse, aide, family support counselor, spiritual care counselor, grief counselor, and volunteer support. The child’s current physician also serves as a member of the Transitions Kids team.
