Foster Parents Needed For Medically Fragile Children
Don’t go it alone! Guidestone™ (transforming from Berea Children’s Home and Family Services) has been successfully providing foster care services across Northeast Ohio since 1985. Our Foster Care program offers the support you need – from experienced foster parents to our many types of services and support staff.
We are in need of loving homes for our medically fragile foster children. Medically Fragile foster parents provide a valuable service in caring for children ages birth to 18 who have been identified as having medical and developmental issues. These issues include, but are not limited to premature birth, respiratory conditions, cerebral palsy, shaken baby syndrome and prenatal drug/alcohol exposure. These children require life-sustaining medications, treatment, equipment, access to multiple medical appointments and assistance with completing their daily activities. Guidestone medically fragile foster parents receive extensive training and support from our on-staff nurse. This program is one of the only of its kind in Northeast Ohio and Guidestone receives referrals on a weekly basis.
