Why The Darling Home for Kids?
- There are more than 16,000 children in Ontario who have been classified as medically complex. This is a wide-reaching definition, and children who are in this category experience a multitude of health concerns, which can
include lack of mobility, limited brain development, organ deficiencies, compromised immune systems, and the onset of further disease as a result of their originating condition. The complexity of their health conditions can be so vast and rare, that many do not have a complete diagnosis, and if they do, they are one of only a handful in the world. Many of these children require intensive medical support and services that are not easily found in other healthcare settings.
- As Ontario’s first paediatric hospice and respite centre, The Darling Home for Kids was built on 77 acres of woodlands to provide essential care to families facing the daily challenges of caring for a child with complex medical needs. Requiring care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the parents of these special children need support. Currently, we are one of only three homes in Ontario providing highly specialized paediatric hospice and respite services, and the only home to also offer long-term residential care.
- Due to the significant care demands required, respite support has emerged as the most pressing need for families caring for medically complex children. Without effective respite services exhaustion faced by these families can result in caregiver burnout. Even with the maximum level of government support, many parents are providing extensive one-on-one care. For these families, respite is critical.
- Strong families help build strong communities and prosperous economies, a more secure future for us all.
