Training for Families Caring for Medically Fragile Infants Coming Home from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Caring for a medically fragile little one can be scary. Providence NICU staff, Stone Soup Group and the Alaska Center for Resource Families are here to help.
NICU staff will discuss feeding and digestion concerns, respiratory issues, discharge plans and how to prepare for leaving the hospital. Stone Soup Group will provide follow up community resources and supports. We will also hear from parents who have experience with the NICU and supporting a baby coming home.
Please note, for simplicity we will use the term “parents” throughout this training, however, “parents” may be other family members, foster parents or guardians caring for a child.
The Caring for Medically Fragile Infants Training is sponsored and supported by Stone Soup Group’s Family-to-Family Project, the Alaska Center for Resource Families, the State of Alaska Office of Children’s Services, and Providence Hospital NICU Unit.
