We know it can be difficult to talk with your child about upcoming surgery. We suggest that you give your child honest, age-appropriate information that will keep him or her from worrying or being caught off guard. Involve your child in preparation, such as shopping for Popsicles® or packing a favorite toy or DVD to bring along. Drawing pictures or reading a book can be a good starting point.
For patients whose diseases or conditions allow them to continue recovery or rehabilitation at home, Cook Children's Home Health can provide an alternative to hospital care. At home, children receive family and caregiver support that assists recovery. Research has found that children who require long-term care usually feel better when treated in the familiar surroundings of home. In addition, home health services cost significantly less than hospital care.
