Who can attend Child’s Way?
Any infant, toddler, or adolescent from birth through age 21 who is medically fragile or medically at risk, including but not limited to any child:
- who would qualify for in-home nursing services
- with a short-term acute need for outpatient rehabilitation or nursing care
- with long-term medical needs, including ventilator-dependent children
- with at least a 4 hour need for skilled nursing services
What is the cost to attend?
The cost for each child’s care is broken down into two portions: child care fees and medical service fees.
Child Care Fees
The child care fee is $32 per day and is the responsibility of each child’s parent(s) and/or guardians. If a family is not able to afford all or some of the child care fee, financial support is available due to the generosity of The Children’s Home’s donors and supporters. Child’s Way staff will also provide assistance in attaining monies through Child Care Information Services (CCIS). Child’s Way has never turned away a family who was unable to pay for services.
Medical Service Fees
The medical component of Child’s Way is reimbursed by health insurance. As a part of the Admission process, each child’s health insurance needs to provide approval for services at Child’s Way. The charges to health insurance are determined by the complexity of the medical care required by each patient. Child’s Way has contracts with the majority of insurance companies in the tri-state area and will be happy to assist families with contacting their insurance companies to obtain approval.
