We offer a cheerful and safe place for your child. In addition to our years of nursing experience caring for medically fragile and special needs children, we offer activities which are designed to be enjoyed by children of all ability levels. Licensed nurses, trained Personal Care Attendants and Activity Leaders provide MD-ordered care and activities.
Our nurses are trained in providing tube feedings, tracheostomy care, suctioning, medication administration, respiratory treatments and many other aspects of nursing care, as ordered by each child’s MD.
An Alternative to Homecare
Home nursing may not be the best fit for your family or may be unavailable. We offer the same nursing care you would receive in-home but in a daycare setting. My Friends care can also be used to supplement homecare.
Weekday, Weekend and After School Care
Our Centers are open 7 days per week, with exception of major holidays. Children may attend on a regular basis or as needed.
Care of the Whole Child
We provide regular activities for all levels of abilities. In addition to our nursing care, we feel our clients deserve to be enriched developmentally and socially. Our Activity Leaders arrange themed activities, inside and outside, ensuring all clients can participate as they are able.
