Edmarc’s health care services allow a child with a life-limiting illness to stay at home whenever possible. Remaining at home helps alleviate some of the child’s stress, and can make healthcare for the child less traumatic.
To help families cope, Edmarc offers a broad range of services to address not only the physical and emotional needs of the child, but the multi-dimensional needs of the family as well. Edmarc’s home health, and hospice support services are available to children and families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Since 1978, Edmarc’s program has grown steadily, indicating a need for this unique type of care. Edmarc has served over 1,200 families in Hampton Roads, and more than 4,200 family members in the past 39 years.
