Transitional Care Homes for Children

Since 1991, KenCrest has offered premier transitional care homes uniquely designed for infants, toddlers, and children with complex medical needs.

The following video features our homes, caring staff  and the families who benefit from them.

About Our Transitional Care Homes

Our homes are located in Chestnut Hill, PA and Philadelphia, PA. They are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF). We accept infants and young children who are medically fragile and/or technology-dependent. This includes children with tracheotomies, central lines, oxygen and feeding tubes, chromosomal disorders, and neurological conditions.

Each home welcomes children who are medically ready to be discharged from the hospital but require some type of ongoing support beyond what they can receive at their family home. While our homes can host children of all ages, we only accept infants and children younger than school age as a part of our intake process.

What Sets KenCrest Apart

KenCrest encourages families to visit their children as often as they like. Families can easily access the transitional care homes by public transportation, making visitation convenient. Additionally, the homes Child at Transitional Care Homeare also in close proximity to several superior pediatric medical facilities including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Each home supports up to six children. Two nurses and one direct support professional staff the homes 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A medical director affiliated with A.I. DuPont Hospital in Wilmington, DE, leads our team of skilled nurses, physical therapists, occupation therapists, speech-language pathology personnel, and a social worker.

Our homes provide a comfortable setting where children can thrive in a community-based life model, participating in field trips, school programs, park visits, and other daily activities. KenCrest offers a warm, inviting environment that encourages and supports natural family involvement.
