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.
Our homes are located in Chestnut Hill, PA and Philadelphia, PA and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) for 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 can host children of all ages who are medically ready to be discharged from the hospital but require some type of ongoing support beyond that which 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.
The transitional care homes are easily accessible by public transportation, and are in close proximity to several superior pediatric medical facilities including Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Each home supports up to six children with two nurses and one direct support professional 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our team is led by a medical director who is affiliated with A.I. DuPont Hospital in Wilmington, DE, and is comprised 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.
