Pediatric Care

Home is where we can make magic happen – together.

Our teams work to develop relationships with the families and clinicians we serve as part of our mission to improve the quality of life in the delivery of care to those who need it most – all from the comfort of home.

Pediatric Care

Keeping you home

Leading the way in pediatric homecare. 

At Family First Homecare, we’re committed to the development of innovative and reliable strategies to reduce the possibility of hospitalizations to keep your child safely at home.

Relationships

We prioritize the relationship with your family and are inspired by the possibility of reaching your goals with you.

Innovation

From fundamental therapies to the innovative techniques in transitional care, we’re focused on next-level quality care.

Passion

We seek to improve the standards in pediatric homecare with the medical communities in any market we work.

Peace of Mind

We prioritize the small details surrounding this process so you can focus on being a parent as we work together.

Homecare Excellence

Our preceptor program.

Precepting is vital to promoting the competence, confidence and safety of new nurses in a new environment. Which is why Family First created our own Preceptor Program –  an innovative model of preceptorship/mentorship that allows new nurses to learn from and shadow experts in the field, helping to meet the unique needs of homecare nurses to be successful with their patients and provide the highest quality care. This ensures we continue to push homecare to its highest level of quality for our patients possible.

Critical Care Transition Program

Peace of mind for coming – and staying – home.

As a parent, if you are new to the homecare field or feeling overwhelmed about your child being ready to leave the hospital to come home for the first time, we understand. We have developed our Critical Care Transitions Program for this very reason, whether the transition needs to occur from one agency to Family First, or from the hospital to home.

Care Coordination

Coordinating multiple care providers can be overwhelming, which is why we offer a comprehensive service to coordinate the provision of care to your child. We develop strong and collaborative relationships with the medical communities who share the responsibility of identifying, prescribing and delivering the right care.

Hospital Rapport

The rapport we keep with doctors and specialists doesn’t end when your child leaves the hospital. We maintain consistent communication with your physicians and provide the visibility they need to assess and ensure your child is receiving care and support they need as developments occur.

Nurse Education

In addition to our team undergoing training specific to the families they are working with, our dedicated nurses are offered comprehensive training including:

  • Tracheostomy and ventilator management
  • Respiratory-related diagnosis common in homecare
  • Adult and pediatric respiratory care
  • Durable medical equipment (DME) 

Pediatric Teaching

We are committed to becoming a pediatric teaching organization as a strategy to improve pediatric nursing across the industry for nurses and therapists who work for any organization. Families are in need of advanced skill sets to safely provide complex care and Family First Homecare is dedicated to delivering it.
