When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening or life-limiting condition, even before birth, families face complex decisions and unimaginable demands on time, energy and resources.
Compass Care, the pediatric palliative care program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, works closely with your child's medical team to optimize his or her quality of life, while providing cutting-edge medical care and support. Our mission is to help your child live as well as possible for as long as possible.
This includes more than physical wellness. We provide emotional, social and spiritual care to enhance your family's strengths, capacity to cope and quality of time together.
