Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and 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. The Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids is a vibrant and joyful home-away-from home for kids with life-threatening conditions, where each moment is embraced and celebrated. This joyful home-away-from home is a place where families who care for children with life-threatening conditions can utilize for short breaks of rest, or an option beyond the hospital or home environment for compassionate, end-of-life care. Kids and young adults, 0-21 years old, are able to stay in one of six bedrooms for overnight respite and, as needed, a sacred place at the end-of-life. Along with therapy rooms and recreational space, a family suite is available so that families may stay together while enjoying a temporary get-away from the constant demands of care giving. All services and stays provided at Crescent Cove to kids and families are at no out-of-pocket cost thanks to the generosity of donors who make this possible.
