PHS Home Care for Patients With Cerebral Palsy
Pediatric home care is what we do. For more than two decades, PHS has provided compassionate, comprehensive, specialized, high quality in-home care to pediatric patients, no matter what their medical challenges.
A multidisciplinary PHS team collaborates to do everything possible to help our patients with cerebral palsy live life to the fullest – at home.
- PHS respiratory therapists, infusion nurses, home care nurses and dietitians provide treatment, education and clinical support on prescribed respiratory treatments and individualized nutrition plans for CP patients, their families and in-home community providers.
- Our therapists and clinicians provide scheduled routine in-home visits and 24/7 on-call assistance to families with our service.
- During weekly meetings with the PHS medical director, therapists and clinicians give clinical updates and review prescribed care plans. PHS makes recommendations to the patient’s primary physician to update the care plan as the child’s health status in the home changes.
- PHS provides 24/7 on-call assistance to families receiving our service
- A PHS clinical social worker is available to help the family deal with the many issues and concerns that arise with a CP diagnosis.
- Treatment modalities for CP patients may include nebulization, oxygen therapy, CPAP, mechanical ventilation via tracheostomy, cough assistance devices, bronchial drainage, enteral feeding, IV feeding, IV hydration or suctioning.
- PHS offers a wide range of supplies and equipment for CP patients and their families and caregivers, along with training on utilization.

About Cerebral Palsy
A non-progressive, chronic, neurologic disorder that interferes with the ability to control body and muscle movement, cerebral palsy is caused by damage to specific areas of the brain that control muscle movement, coordination of body movement, and posture. Depending upon the area of the brain that is damaged, speech, hearing, swallowing, breathing, and learning can also be affected. Cerebral palsy cannot be cured. Maintaining mobility and independence are goals of care.
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) provides timely information for parents and families of individuals with cerebral palsy.
