Ready. Set. Home! is available to patient families from within our facility as well as from home through a streaming app.

Additionally, each family will receive a personalized manual that is geared toward their child’s specific medical needs. The manual covers all of the topics presented in our video series as well as some additional detailed information and a special community resources section. Having easy access to the videos and manual means that family caregivers can revisit a topic as many times as they need to to feel confident in providing their child’s care.

Our video series covers the following topics

  • Caring for a Central Line
  • Changing a Tracheostomy Tube
  • Go Bag
  • G-tube Care
  • Nesting with Your Child
  • Packing Your Kid Kart
  • Trach Care
  • Traveling with Medical Equipment
  • Troubleshooting Tracheostomy Emergencies

These videos are not to be used for teaching by themselves as they are an overview of the process, however, can be used to supplement teaching from a healthcare professional. These videos are most successful when viewed during or after teaching within The Children’s Home & Lemieux Family Center.
