Through its Home Based Services program, Childkind provides critical in-home training and supports for families with children who have complex care needs; specifically children within high level clinical risk group categories (chronic, complex chronic, and malignancies) who live in low to extreme-low income households in Metro Atlanta. Last year Childkind served 104 families with 296 children through its Home Based Services, 98 percent of whom had household incomes under $23,000 (47 percent had incomes below $10,000).
Childkind’s goal is to increase the parent’s ability to manage complex regimens of care successfully. This goal is measured by specific targets that lead to discharge from the program. Objectives include: connection to community resources, reductions in a stress index, evaluation of a parent’s ability correctly incorporate prescriptive regimens of care into daily care tasks, and compliance to medication and other medical service requirements.
