A Home Away
From Home

The Darling Home for Kids provides high quality respite, residential and hospice care to children with medical complexities and their families.

It’s a fundamental philosophy of The Darling Home for Kids that all our children feel a sense of belonging and have access to services to help them reach their full potential.

There’s no place like this Home

The Darling Home for Kids is a state-of-the-art facility set on a beautiful 77-acre woodlot in Milton, Ontario. Nestled on the Niagara Escarpment, it provides a tranquil and peaceful homelike setting for our children and their families.

The Home has 7 bedrooms that can accommodate 12 children for overnight care. In our large family room, children and families relax by the fireplace, read stories, and snuggle up to watch movies. Our kitchen provides space for meal times and baking, while our multi-purpose room is a space for arts and crafts, activities, and counseling.

Our clinical spaces include our staff station and medication room, and therapeutic programming is offered in our multi-sensory (Snoezelen) room and hydrotherapy room.

Outside, we have a screened in porch, walking trails, a playground, a therapeutic sculpture garden, and a waterfall, allowing children to interact with nature.

By providing wrap-around care and support, we aim to fulfill a gap in the community, helping to ease the strain on hospital resources while also providing a bridge between hospital and home for families in need.
