By providing respiratory care at home, we help decrease the need for hospitalizations and enable families to spend more quality time together. We also strive to foster meaningful relationships between clinicians and families and equip our nursing specialists with the professional development and support they need to make a difference.

In collaboration with children’s physicians, our team confidently tailors care plans to each patient’s unique needs. Leveraging the latest medical research, technology, and techniques, we provide highly-skilled treatment and respiratory management services to help children live their best lives.

How We Deliver Exceptional Respiratory Care

Care Options for Kids is distinguished from other providers in the industry by employing full-time respiratory therapists who are dedicated to providing educational and clinical support to nursing staff and families.

Nurses are trained on various ventilators utilized in the home care setting. On occasion, a respiratory therapist will be involved in the discharge planning process and is present on discharge day to ensure the transition from a facility into the home.

Therapists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our nurses are trained by respiratory therapists in various areas of respiratory care, including but not limited to the following:
