Welcome to CHC!
Children’s Home Care is dedicated to providing high quality pediatric home care to your child. We offer pediatric services for your medically fragile child designed for infants, children and adolescents up to age 21. CHC nurses are specially trained in the unique needs of your child.

We will provide family-centered, consistent, quality, coordinated care. Our nurses and staff expect parental involvement in the care and in the establishment of the Plan of Care. Parents will always be the primary caregivers even though they are receiving home health care support.

Our office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 8:30am – 4:00pm on Friday. After hours and on weekends an answering service will answer your call and then contact the On-Call staff member for appropriate follow-up.

All you need to do is call the agency office at 281-921-2301 and ask for one of our Clinical Managers. They will take your information and answer your questions. If you wish, a Clinical Manager will visit with you in the hospital or come to your home to meet with you so that you can learn more about Children’s Home Care before you make a decision to change agencies.
Children’s Home Care is an agency owned and operated by professionals with more than 30 years of experience in pediatric home care.
All you need to do is call another agency and explain your situation. You can ask for the agency representative to come to your home to meet you and your child. An agency should always be available to come to meet you.
If you have unresolved issues with your current agency, it is your right to choose another agency to assume care for your child. It is always recommended that you attempt to resolve the issues with your current provider. However, if you cannot, changing to another agency may be your best solution.
