The perinatal and pediatric palliative care program at Toledo Children’s Hospital works to enhance quality of life – in partnership with the child, family and health care professionals – by providing physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual support when a life-threatening condition has been diagnosed.
The focus of palliative care is to relieve symptoms (such as pain or fatigue) and conditions (such as loneliness or distress) that take away from a child’s enjoyment of life. Therapies include education, grief and family counseling, peer support, music therapy, child life intervention, and spiritual support. When we provide a palliative care service, we make sure that our services are consistent with your family's values and strive to make our treatment plans completely tailored to your child’s needs.
