It’s hard to believe our region has no place like Sarah House
So many of Ohio’s children and their families face life-limiting conditions like Cancer, Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic Fibrosis and Cerebral Palsy, among many other medically fragile conditions. Many of these children live at home and require extensive 24-hour family and nursing support.
A place like Sarah House would provide a homelike environment tailored to the specific needs of the child, and serve as an alternative to returning to the hospital for comfort and end-of-life care. Sarah House will also provide occasional and much-needed respite for the child and his or her family.
