About Us

Founded in 1997, Children’s Country Home is a loving eight-bed, nonprofit home that provides 24-hour skilled nursing care to medically fragile Children.

We are licensed as a home health agency and pediatric group home.  Annually, we serve approximately 20 medically fragile children.

Children’s Country Home supports the quality of life every child deserves and helps all to reach their full potential.  Every child’s learning ability is identified and their educational needs are met through effective collaboration with the local school system. Social interaction is an integral component of the home environment.  All children have the opportunity to participate in activities on site or off.

Our Mission and Commitment

Children’s Country Home enhances the quality of life of medically fragile children by providing 24-hour healthcare services in a loving, family centered home guided by the values of dignity, compassion, sharing and stewardship.

The house is located in a family-centered neighborhood and features bright, colorful rooms and living areas with an extensive and accessible yard.

We believe that children should be served in the least restrictive setting possible, and make every attempt to provide an atmosphere that is similar to a child’s home, helping the child to live and grow – physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and culturally.
