Introducing Project Respite Care, Steps to Success and Project Adventure
Project Respite Care
Overview: This program is designed match children with special health care needs with students who have an interest in medicine, nursing, or human services to provide one-to-one respite care.
In-hospital Respite: We are currently working with children with special health care needs who are hospitalized on the Complex Care Service (CCS) at Children's Hospital, Boston
In-home Respite: From 2000-2004, with funding from Deborah Munroe Noonan Memorial Fund, Project Respite Care matched students with families for in-home respite care. We hope to be able to continue that program in the future.
Steps to Success
This research project is an opportunity for children with Down Syndrome to participate in an Adaptive Dance class through the Boston Ballet. This program is for children ages 8 to 18 and also matches each child with a student mentor.
Project Adventure provides children with special health care needs and disabilities, ages 8-15, the opportunity to participate in physical recreational activities in an inclusive setting with the support of a trained mentor.
