Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) has made life easier for many families with children in need of specialized medical attention. PPEC medical daycare facilities that are adequately equipped and well-staffed with highly qualified and experienced caretakers see to it that these children grow and develop to realize their best potential. That’s what drives us at Pedikidz of Florida. Each day, we work hard to ensure the little ones in our care grow stronger, happier, and are able to interact with the world around them.
Medical daycare centers are facilities that take care of children with medical conditions which affect their development and physical, mental, and social growth. Like regular daycares, children in medical daycare are entrusted in the hands of caregivers who are not their parents. While regular centers normally exist for parents who are not available to care for their kids from day to day, medical daycare centers are for children with special needs who require specialized attention.
At medical daycares, you’ll find skilled nurses and therapists who look after the kids daily. These professionals help children to develop socially through programs such as behavioral therapies while at the same time taking care of their medical needs.
Does Your Child Require Medical Daycare?
Your child may need to attend a medical daycare if they have been diagnosed with any of the following conditions:
- Fetal alcohol syndrome
- Down syndrome
- Muscular dystrophy
- Cerebral palsy
Children with these and other chronic conditions require specialized care to help them gain physical, cognitive, and social skills. In addition, they may need special equipment for treatment such as wheelchairs, oxygen equipment, and feeding aids. That is why it’s vital that you seek professional help from qualified medical practitioners.
At Pedikidz of Florida, our services include educational programs, respiratory care, physical therapy, and transportation. With these and other services, parents can ensure their children receive the care they need. You can trust your child with our skilled nurses who are well trained to provide both medical and non-medical care.
What Happens in a Medical Daycare?
