Pediatric Home Health Services
Caring for children with chronic health conditions or complex disabilities requires constant supervision and attention. While family members will always be the most important caregivers, seeking help from pediatric home health care can make a positive difference in the life of the child and their family members.
Health Force provides highly specialized pediatric home health care in Southwest Florida and Chicago. We are dedicated to ensuring each child gets the care they need and that their family is supported in the process.
What Exactly Is Pediatric Home Health Care?
Pediatric home health care is a treatment plan provided to children with complex medical or developmental disabilities. This type of care is intended for children who need extensive care and who, without it, may experience frequent hospitalizations or ongoing institutional care.
Pediatric home health care providers, RNs and LPNs, are specifically trained to care for children with chronic illnesses. Their goal is to make sure the child’s needs are met and to keep them comfortable, happy, and out of the hospital.
Is Pediatric Home Health Care Right for Your Family?
If you are caring for a child with a complex medical condition or developmental disability, help from pediatric home health care can improve the life of the child, as well as their family members.
A home health care professional will help alleviate some of this stress and provide the specialized care that is needed.

What You Can Expect to Get Started
No two children are the same, which is certainly true for children with complex medical needs. That’s why Health Force takes the time to create a specialized care plan for each family that chooses our services.
When you get started with us, we perform a full in-home assessment to understand the limitations and opportunities of in-home care. Children also receive a full assessment and evaluation by a registered nurse. Our team will then create a plan of care specifically designed for your child’s needs.
Our team will walk you through the process every step of the way. We also understand that care plans are ever-changing, and we work with you to revise treatment as needed.
How to Pay for Home Health Care Services
Some families opt out of exploring their options for home health care services because they think they can’t afford it. However, with flexible pricing plans and insurance, it may be more affordable than you think.
We accept most commercial insurances and can work with your provider to explore your coverage options. For Florida patients, we also accept Medicare and Medicaid.
