The Abigail E. Keller Foundation board of directors and Dr. Patrick Jones Dell Children’s Palliative/Hospice Director, recently had the opportunity to visit Crescent Cove pediatric respite/hospice home in Minneapolis.

What a wonderful facility supporting medical fragile and terminally ill children and their families. Such an inspiration in our work to open one here in Texas.

Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and to their families who love them. Around the United States, there are over 4,700 hospice homes for adults; the Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids is Minnesota’s first and only home designed just for children and their unique needs, and just the third of its kind in the United States. A vibrant and joyful home-away-from home, our goal is to help families feel Embraced, Assured, and Celebrated.
