As Crescent Cove works to build this much needed home, we are currently providing some care and support to families in our community. This support includes integrative therapies to families referred by pediatric palliative care clinicians, respite weekends and developing an online support group.
Many children with life-limiting conditions lack adequate support when nearing the end of their lives. “There is relatively little awareness of the need for children’s hospice services,” Lindenfelser says. “Many people assume that there are options available for these families, while the reality is that there aren’t.”
Thank you for helping children live as fully as possible to the last moment of life, and ensure families are supported during this very difficult and challenging time.
The mission of Crescent Cove, formerly Children’s Lighthouse of Minnesota, is to offer care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and their families. We intend to fulfill this dream by creating one of only a handful of children’s residential hospice and respite care homes in the United States.
