Who lives in Kinderhaus AtemReich?
18 children live in Kinderhaus AtemReich, who are ventilated and need interdisciplinary intensive care. Before they were admitted to AtemReich, they were permanently cared for in the intensive care units of the children’s hospitals, although their acute treatment was already completed. However, as they still need nursing and medical care, curative education and therapy, it is in many cases not possible to care for them at home with their parents, as outpatient care cannot be or is not yet guaranteed. Our aim is therefore to offer these children a protected place far away from intensive care units and the hectic hospital routine, where they can grow up and develop.
The reasons for admitting children to Kinderhaus AtemReich are different:
- Complex clinical pictures
- Medical technology dependence
- Family situation and living situation
