Chronic Care Education and Support

Featured Image

Akron Children’s Chronic Care Education and Support in Boardman works closely with providers to ensure children with chronic diseases are taught the prevention and self-management skills needed to better participate in school and their community.

Our services are guided by the Chronic Care Model, which has been adopted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other national disease organizations, including the American Diabetes Association.

These services are provided by nurses and certified nurse practitioners, dietitians, respiratory therapists, and a chronic illness coordinator. Together, they help children achieve self-management through:

  • Age-appropriate education and resources
  • Tools such as Telehealth and Facetime, to provide broader access to health care
  • Support for a child’s psychosocial needs
  • Disease-specific support groups
  • Tracking of progress and care to get positive outcomes and identify areas for improvement
  • Daycare or school visits to coordinate care and provide on-site support

A physician referral is required to receive these services. Caregivers or school personnel may also contact us directly. These services are offered at no charge thanks to the generous grants and community donations we receive.
