Ventracare Homes, Inc. welcomes children who are medically ready to be discharged from the hospital but require some type of ongoing support beyond what they can receive at their family home. We encourage families to visit their children as often as they like. Families can easily access our transitional care home by public transportation, making visitation convenient. Additionally, our home is also near several pediatric medical facilities, including the Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn.

Our home supports up to twelve children. Three nurses and one direct support professional staff at the home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A medical director leads our team of skilled nurses, physical therapists, occupation therapists, speech-language pathology personnel, and social workers.


Respite Care

Care for children who are under age 22, are medically complex, have a medical condition that requires care to be delivered by a nurse or a trained parent/caregiver, and who are admitted for no more than 14 days.

Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, or disabled family member.
