Home health care for children with Cerebral Palsy varies with need and may need a team of Healthcare professionals who may may regularly visit your home to assist with tasks.

Axzons In-home health care for children

Axzons’s  in-home healthcare team is comprised of health care workers who provide services for children inside the child’s own home. The relationships with the people on the home care team are essential to the health and well-being of not only the child, but the entire family.

Largely dependent upon the severity of the child’s health condition and the demands on the home environment, services exists to assist where and when needed. For some, housecleaning and a weekly visit from the traveling nurse may be sufficient, while others may require in-home, round-the-clock nursing care, or childcare while a parent works. Some health conditions require more service than others.

Who is on the Home Health Care Team?

Several team members our team may regularly visit a household as they perform care and a variety of supportive tasks. There may be someone in the home helping wash dishes and fold laundry, at the same time as another is helping the child with Cerebral Palsy perform prescribed range-of-motion exercises. The school may periodically send a speech and language pathologist or therapist to the home when the child is not able to communicate well, or attend school.

A registered dietician may make monthly visits to supervise nutritional programs. A behavioral psychologist may be contracted for a one-time only visit to assist with some social barriers. Assistive technology service providers may evaluate the home and vehicle needs for ways to make the child’s environment more accessible and inclusive.

We provide assistance with common household chores like meal preparation, personal hygiene and housekeeping chores. Some provide support with activities of daily living and companionship.
