Residential Care

“As I drove onto the grounds of The Darling Home for Kids, I felt as though I’d entered a different world. I was met with peacefulness and the soothing sounds of nature. In front of the cottage retreat-like Home, I saw a wheelchair-accessible playground surrounded only by lush green forest. Sharleen, the Home’s Director of Clinical Services, greeted me at the bright red doors, and from the moment she introduced us to all the Home offered, it became our new Home away from home.”
– Tiffany, DHK mom

Our Residential Program

As a caregiver of a child with complex medical needs, we understand the challenges you face on a daily basis. At The Darling Home for Kids, our goal is to support you and your child every step of the way.

Our Residential Program offers a safe and loving environment, designed to meet the unique needs of children with complex medical conditions. With comprehensive care from our dedicated, compassionate, and highly qualified Care Team, your child will have the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.

Your child will have a daily routine filled with opportunities for growth and development, including school, community outings, and daily activities that promote their physical, social, and emotional well-being. Our state-of-the-art Home, tranquil gardens, specialized equipment, and wheelchair-accessible spaces ensure that your child has a comfortable and accessible place to call home.

Although your child may live with us on a full-time basis, you will always remain an integral part of their life. With regular visits, participation in medical appointments and meetings, and open communication with our staff, you will play a vital role in guiding your child’s care.

At The Darling Home for Kids, we exist to ease the burden of care and provide a safe and loving environment for your child. With our support, your child will receive the best possible quality of life.
