When your child is experiencing a life-limiting illness, the dreams you had for your son or daughter must change, and the demands on your family structure can be overwhelming.
Life House Atlanta has been founded to be a specialized home-away-from-home where families can bring their child with life-limiting illness for a respite stay, allowing parent caregivers to take a much-needed break.
We invite you to connect with us as we work to launch this special home that will provide a critical resource for this community.

What is Respite Care?
Respite care offers caregivers a temporary reprieve from the stresses of caring for a fragile loved one and the opportunity to engage in self-renewing activities.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is patient and family-centered care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating suffering. It addresses physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs throughout the continuum of illness.
To establish a warm, inviting and uniquely designed family-centered home for pediatric respite and palliative care stays and, if desired, a sacred place for compassionate care at the end of life.
To provide a home away from home where families and their children with life-limiting illnesses can enjoy a temporary getaway from the constant demands of specialized round-the-clock care, at no cost to families.
We are honored to introduce you to Catherine Reed, a special little girl who is surrounded by a loving family. Mary, her mom, shares their journey here in this video. Mary joined the Board of Directors of Life House Atlanta to help champion the dream of having a place for her family to receive support and find community.
