As children continue through their illness they may experience pain and other discomfort. Sometimes "increasing quality of life" means lessening pain and discomfort as much as possible. Footprints℠ is not hospice, but does help facilitate pain and symptom control for children.
The Footprints℠ program works with doctors who are experts in pain control for children to make sure the child is comfortable.
Footprints℠ is also prepared to help educate your child, your family and the community of health care providers about pain control and your wishes outlined in the Advanced Care Plan.
