Parent Toolkit: Strategies for Maximizing Your Child’s Health

key information

source: Children's Hospital Colorado

summary/abstract:

Having a child diagnosed with a chronic illness alters every aspect of a family’s life. Besides the procedures and medical appointments, the paperwork, the uncertainty, the disruption to work and school, there’s also the fact that your child is sick. That’s a hard thing to accept. Caring for a chronically ill child can feel stressful and time-consuming, and parenting decisions that used to be easy can suddenly feel very hard.

We at Children’s Hospital Colorado can help. Think of this “toolkit” as a guide or a reference for coping with the stresses of chronic illness, from navigating the medical system to juggling medical needs and school to managing daily routines. These pages also include many resources for finding extra help — online, in the community, and here at Children’s Colorado.
