Firely Pediatric Services now has three residential homes located in Allentown, Harleysville and Bradford Pennsylvania. “Home for Kids” offers a warm, comfortable, home-like environment to medically fragile children who have severe needs and cannot remain in a hospital or home setting for various reasons. Medically fragile children can now reside at one of the Firely’s Home for Kids locations to receive quality ongoing medical care. We also provide training to families who are still learning their medically fragile child’s care.
Our Specialty Care Team
Our team works together in a home-like and loving environment. The team consists of a pediatric medical director, pediatric nurses with extensive respiratory training, pediatric respiratory therapist, child care supervisor and specialized trained pediatric support aides. Our team works with local intermediate units and early intervention to incorporate PT, OT and ST and vision services. Our whole team encourages each child to reach their full potential on a weekly basis.
Our team creates two separate plans to aid in the care of your child. A Plan of Care is a customized plan created by the case manager who works together with the child’s physician. This Plan will include family input and involvement and have defined goals for each child. An Individual Service Plan is developed for each child and incorporates PT, OT, and ST goals. Plans will include rehabilitations goals.
The families are invited to be involved with the child’s everyday activities and we encourage families to visit as often as possible. The staff is always available to answer questions or any updating regarding your child.
