Respite and palliative care for children with life-limiting illness

Donate Today

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 support families like yours, and we invite you to connect with us as we work to launch this special home that hopes to 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.

Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

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.
