Children’S respite for parents
This program offers in-home respite and support to families of chronically ill children. Following an in-home assessment, a registered nurse case manager creates a care plan to be used by our Home Health Aides (HHA) during their visits. We will help with daily activities such as personal hygiene, movement, physical and mental wellbeing, treatment, medication and other activities in the home.
To ensure continuity of care, the same Nova Home Health Aide will visit each week.
A medical referral from a healthcare professional is required.
The HHAs provide an average of three-six hours of respite care per week.
These services are offered free of charge.
