Help For Houston's Disabled Community on National Rare Diseases Day
Mothers of disabled children in Houston/Harris County are about to get some much-needed help in the form of Joycare Daycare, scheduled to open any day now.
Still being impacted by the ripple effects of Hurricane Harvey, Joycare was slated to open just days before the massive storm took aim at the Texas Gulf Coast.
Plagued by the backlog of delays with Building Permits from the over-worked, over-stressed, over-whelmed City of Houston Permitting Office and the scarcity of supplies due to the heavy demand for sheet rock & drywall & carpenters, have caused never-ending delays in their much-anticipated Grand Opening until now.
We are over joyed that Solomon will be among the first of Houston/Harris County's Medically-Fragile children to be accepted into the program.
The first & only facility of it's kind in our area, Joycare Daycare is equipped with a full-time staff fully trained & equipped to care for a wide array of complex medical needs in newborns & children to age 20, enabling their Moms to get a job & work during the day.
Regular daycare facilities cannot & will not accept children like my Grandson due to the legal liability of caring for children with round-the-clock-medical needs.
Approved & funded by Medicaid, children with benefits for a Home Health Provider DO qualify for this type of assistance, covered 100% by Medicaid.
For further information on how to get help in our area for children of every ability with medical needs, please see their website or contact information below to enroll your child.
