Supporting the journey
Families who have been impacted by cancer found it hard to transition from hospital to home. The emotional and practical support provided daily in the hospital suddenly disappears and families felt alone and unsure of where to seek support.
While trying to juggle everyday life with a recovering child, parents were either turning to Google for advice, or getting overwhelmed by the volume of information out there. They needed a supportive guide, to show them the information and support services that were relevant to them, based on where they were both in the cancer experience and geographically.
Educate & inspire hope
In preparing to leave the hospital, we wanted to ensure that they feel emotionally and practically ready, and have everything they need for home.
“Once home, we want to support families in navigating the early days and changes they may experience, and provide a solid connection to support services for longer-term adjustment”
