Pediatric Advanced Home Care enables the care of an ill child at home. An acute home care team treats children who have fallen ill suddenly or need only short-term care. Their patients include children who receive intravenous antibiotics due to an infection, or children who require wound care, for example.

Home teams perform care for patients in need of long-term care. Patients in long-term care usually have a tracheostomy, or they need a medical device of some sort, for example a ventilator.

All Advanced Home Care patients are outpatients and the care provided at home is voluntary and free of charge for the families.

Pediatric Advanced Home Care is available in the following municipalities in the HUS-region: Helsinki, Espoo, Kirkkonummi, Kauniainen, and Kerava. Long-term care can also be arranged in Lohja, Porvoo, and Raseborg regions.
