We can help children and families who require support with various needs, such as brain injury, neurological conditions, mechanical ventilation, spinal cord injuries and undiagnosed conditions. We recognise the need for appropriately qualified care and support, and as such, our paediatric care teams each have a paediatric nurse assigned to them.
Our paediatric care services are tailored to meet every family’s unique needs, supporting them to continue with their social and professional lives.
“We support families to lead a ‘normal’ life with a personalised healthcare plan that is tailored to the needs of the whole family”
Ark's Support in Practice
Evie is a 5 year old who was born prematurely with a number of medical issues that has meant she requires constant care and support. Evie has an older brother and her parents were struggling to develop a ‘normal’ family life.
With care and support including the management of clinical needs, , management of medicines and structured active play, Evie’s parents have now been able to focus on being parents, and return to work, allowing them to regain their own independence and provide for their young family. Evie’s parents recently took her and her brother to Disney Land for a holiday of a lifetime.
