Most kids with medical complexity are discharged to home after birth or hospital admissions after initial treatments because long-term hospitalization of children is not a preferred option in our society. The definition of special needs is wide. Kids may be born with special needs or develop them over time due to medical conditions or because of accidents.

Home Care covers different kids with special needs; let’s check out the common needs which can benefit from specialist care.

Serious medical conditions

Medical conditions like cancer, heart defects, diabetes, asthma and other life threatening conditions need specialist attention.  Numerous tests need to be run on these kids and without the proper care conditions continue will deteriorate. Proper care will eliminate all uncertainty, complexity and urgent medical care in case of emergencies.

Behavioral issues

These issues are different compared to medical conditions. A kid with behavioral problems will not respond normally to treatment like other kids. For instance someone with ADHD will need someone to look after them constantly, day in and out. The nature of their needs is so different that being patient is the key to keeping care of suck kids. Though parents go to great extents to care for their kids but with day jobs and other responsibilities to attend to, it becomes close nigh impossible for parents to meet the needs of special kids as well as a Home Nursing Care specialist would.

Kids With Visual Impairment

Kids with visual impairment cannot be left on their own. Notably kids who are too young to take care of themselves are at greater risk of injuring themselves. In order to protect them from harm, someone or the other needs to stay close and oversee everything from eating to moving out and mingling with friends – it’s a matter of constant supervision.  Ask yourself this – are you prepared to sacrifice everything else in your life and devote every second of your time to caring for your kid? In many cases, one of the parents prioritizes the welfare of their kids over career and hence decides to stay at home and look after their kids. If you are comfortable doing that you don’t need to think of hiring a Home nurse, otherwise, start interviewing as many professional nurses you can.

Other Physical disabilities

Besides all of these, your kid may have other developmental or physical disability in which case you will need the support of professionals to help your kid develop new skills and become more independent. In any casePsychology Articles, a home nurse can always make life easier for the parent and safer for the kid.

Today's #BridgesCares story is about giving back to your community and making a difference. It was a fun-filled day as @BridgesofIndiana staff attended the Kindness Act awards at @HoosierPrairie Elementary! 
The first recipients of the Kindness Act awards from Hoosier Prarie went to the Halstead brothers who raised $500 for the school's backpack program. Bridges of Indiana matched their donation and we couldn't be more proud to show our support. 
It just goes to show that one kind action leads to another! #bethekindkid #BridgesCares #wearitwednesday

Since coming to Bridges he has lost a whopping 56 pounds! Cliff and his staff Aaron and Terri work very hard on helping Cliff to learn proper nutrition and portion control. Cliff's team including his Case Manager and Guardian are so very proud of him for all of his hard work and making such a great lifestyle change. We even received a call from his Doctor that has seen Cliff for the last five years and stated that he has never seen Cliff in such a healthy state. He was very impressed with how well the staff have helped Cliff, and with how much Cliff has made this positive change. Cliff very excited to continue with his health journey.

Erin came to Bridges a little over three months ago. When Erin came into services, she had been bedridden and had not walked for over a year! In this short time, she has worked with her staff Kayla, Maygan, and Calla along with the rest of the team she has begun walking again.

Erin is now able to walk around her home, to and from the vehicle, and she has a wonderful goal to be able to go up and down the stairs at her daughter's house for Thanksgiving! We know with all of her hard work and perseverance she is sure to succeed! 
Erin has also started a wonderful garden at her home and enjoys all of her fresh food and the time she can now spend outdoors! #BridgesCares #BridgesofWyoming #Thanksgiving
