The Abigail E. Keller Foundation hopes to design and build a pediatric respite/hospice facility where families with medically fragile children can go for a weekend get-a-way, or if parents need to leave the children to attend a family event or emergency. It will also give families a tranquil and peaceful place to take their children to spend their last days in a private, comfortable setting that is specifically for children. Such a facility would give these families a place to leave their children with trained people familiar with special needs children. In addition to providing a place other than the home or hospital for end of life services. The home setting can be extremely difficult for siblings who also live there.
There is nothing like this currently available in Texas for families needing respite care and/or end of life services.
