How We Can Help

We can provide you a lead nurse and a healthcare worker to help you keep your lives as normal as possible and enable you to have time together as a family. This may include:

Practical Tasks in the Home

Helping with shopping, cooking or ironing to give parents the chance to relax, have a bath or go out for a few hours knowing that these everyday tasks are being done.

Spending Time with the Sick Child

Doing craft activities, reading, or talking with the child about their worries about their illness and treatment as another trusted adult. Sometimes children enjoy spending time with someone who is not a part of their immediate family but who understands some of what they are experiencing.

Spending time with Siblings

Giving brothers and sisters individual time to talk, play or go out somewhere and have some fun. Sometimes brothers and sisters don’t want to worry their parents by discussing their fears with them –our qualified Palliative care nurse can help children discuss these fears and identify ways to manage them.

Helping Children Remain in School

Helping children, both the sick child and brothers and sisters, remain in school by offering transport or collecting children at the end of the school day and helping them with homework or school projects. They can also act as a link between home and school if the sick child is unable to attend but still wants to be a part of school life.

About NurtureCare Children’s Care Agency

NurtureCare is an award winning specialist children’s and young person’s healthcare provider covering Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire (the East Midlands). Additional family support within the home and at school for children with special needs is often limited and existing services are exhausted. Families, education, healthcare and social care are becoming frustrated by the lack of service providers who specialise in supporting the child/young person and their families at home or in school. If this cannot be done safely then the child’s families become frustrated and tired, their access to education is limited, and ultimately, children stay in hospital longer. This is why NurtureCare’s services are so well received and rated exceptionally by our service users. NurtureCare offers bespoke care packages for children and young people with a range of health needs. We provide support within the home and other community settings, as well as allowing our service users to attend full time education and fully participate in after school activities and holiday clubs.
