If your child has a lifelong condition like diabetes or needs complex care that affects their growth and development, it can be hard for the entire family. We offer a variety of family-friendly services to explain what’s happening -- to your child and their siblings -- and offer emotional support to the entire family.
Access to Ronald McDonald House Family Room
If your child is in the hospital, you can relax in the Ronald McDonald House Family Room. You can grab a light meal, shower, do laundry, or use a computer with internet access.
Child Life Specialists
Our child life specialists offer support, education, and guidance to help you and your child during treatment and hospitalization. They are here to make your child's health care experience easier -- whether it's explaining a procedure, offering encouragement, or using fun activities to take your child’s mind off treatment.
Social Workers and Counselors
We can help you navigate the medical system and will coordinate the variety of health services your child needs. Our social workers can help you work with insurance providers, connect you with resources, and help you manage the details related to your child’s care.
