Emily’s House is a special place for kids and youth. A place of compassion, care, comfort, laughter, learning and play. Featuring a home-like, comforting environment, Emily’s House is dedicated to caring for children with complex needs while supporting their families. It is the first of its kind in Toronto and among 6 in Canada. Emily’s House brings together high quality, respite and palliative care with the warmth and comfort of a child-focused environment that allows children and their families to have a home away from home for respite, pain and symptom management and palliative care.
Emily’s House offers a third option for a care setting, when hospital and home are not desired or feasible. Hospitals are busy, sterile places, with little space for families to have privacy, and home may be limited in terms of medical support and much needed respite.
Endorsed and supported by Sick Kids Hospital, and serviced by expert physicians, trained nursing staff, dedicated play, art and spiritual care therapists as well as a dedicated management staff and board of directors, Emily’s House brings health care and heart together for the benefit of critically sick children and their families.
Whether a life is measured in days, weeks, months or even years, children living with a life-limiting diagnosis deserve the opportunity to learn, play, develop and grow….to just be kids. Emily’s House helps families make memories out of minutes and miracles out of days.
“What truly makes Emily’s House the place it is is its unbelievably caring, giving and loving staff and volunteers. Each and every person associated with Emily’s House looked after and loved us like we were part of their family. They laughed and cried with us and they will forever be a part of our family and hold a big spot in our hearts”
