"This is a letter to thank you for all of your help in my time of need, and to tell you that my life is looking better each and every day.  I am keeping your telephone number handy just in case I might need a kind word, but I think that all of my friends along with my children are there just to get me through most of the relapses. Thank again for being there and may God bless you for what you are doing to help so many."

“The team who interacted with my dad were exceptional in providing personal, social and spiritual needs.  Their individualized, personalized care and support was genuine and consistent.  On behalf of my family, I thank the caring staff at Seasons Hospice for the services rendered during my dad’s life and for the spiritual support and guidance following his transition.”

“My son and I appreciate very much that Seasons Hospice accepted my husband under their care, and that the flexibility with their policies helped us deal with what was to come.  My husband went home with the pain pump and IV.  Though I knew what to expect, the thought of disconnecting everything made me want to faint.  Thank you for thinking of our needs.  I would like to thank the whole team for their caring attitude and professionalism.  The social worker helped me a lot with the decision making and the nurses were wonderful.  Thank you so very much for the bereavement counselors also.  They are perfectly suited for the work that they do.  They were non-judgmental and always showed interest even with all of my rantings, cries and talks.  They spent as much time as I needed and I am so grateful for that.  The bereavement staff helped me to see things in a different spectrum.  Seasons Hospice is lucky to have those special people on their team.”

Kangaroo Kids

For a family who has a child with life-threatening illness, getting the right kind of support is especially challenging.

Kangaroo Kids is a unique pediatric program dedicated to offering individualized and all-encompassing care to children and families who face a life-threatening illness with sensitivity and skill. It is based on the belief that children and families can thrive best when they're encouraged to care for their child at home, with resources and support to sustain a normal family life in every possible way.

Pediatric Supportive Care

Children with life-threatening illness are children, first and foremost. Kangaroo Kids team members recognize this and are sensitive to how they support a child to be as much in his or her normal everyday life as possible.

The Kangaroo Kids team knows that with their illnesses, kids need to feel they can control some things even while they can't control others; they look for ways to support a child's independence. Kangaroo Kids helps all members of the family address and manage the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of the illness' impact on the child and family. This includes parents, siblings and grandparents; all family members are taken into consideration. From the beginning of the diagnosis, they become partners and develop deep relationships with the child and everyone in the family.

Kangaroo Kids can benefit children and families who are affected by illness or conditions that limit life expectancy, such as:

  • Neurodegenerative disorders
  • Severe metabolic or genetic diseases
  • End-stage cancers
  • AIDS
  • Severe neuromuscular diseases
  • Inoperable cardiac defects
  • Severe congenital anomalies
  • Severe multi-system disorders

Pediatric Supportive Care is different from hospice. You do not need to choose to stop treatment measures for the child. The child can get care at any point in his or her illness.
