At Home Healthcare Throws Christmas Party For Pediatric Patients

A special visit from Santa brought smiles to dozens of pediatric patients Sunday.   At Home Healthcare held its annual Pediatric Christmas Party for its patients and their families. Donations from employees and other local businesses allow At Home Healthcare to purchase gifts for the children. At Home Healthcare says it wants its pediatric patients to have fun and not feel the stigma of being a special needs child.  

"It's a great time for them," said At Home Healthcare Administrator Jana Morris. "They come back year after year because they just get to be themselves. They don't have to worry about being in a wheelchair, or that they have a feeding tube or that they have to have someone there to help them with their cooking. They just get to enjoy the party."  

This is At Home Healthcare's 12th annual Christmas party.
