Partners In Health is a community project for families of children with chronic health conditions in the Greater Manchester Area.
Through the Partners In Health Project, we want to help you find new ways of dealing with the challenges you are facing. Our goal is to provide support, information, and an outlet for the stress of daily routines by:
Bringing families together who have children with chronic health conditions;
Providing families with mutual support, personal experiences and insight;
Building on strengths to raise awareness;
Working together to make a difference in our community for our children
Families residing in Manchester and the surrounding communities with children having crhonic health conditions including:
And other chronic physical conditions
Our family support coordinator will work to assist you and your family in:
Helping you get the services and resources that you need;
Advocating to schools, insurance companies and medical providers;
Arranging for special needs during hospitalizations;
Providing social and recreational opportunities with other families who share common concerns.
Partners In Health is pleased to offer families the following specialty programs:
A "take me away" program that lets you get the rest and time away needed by providing family members with a free, one night hotel stay, gift certificate to a local restaurant and a movie pass.
Partners In Health works with Parent to Parent of Greater Manchester to provide free monthly workshops. Our goal is to provide families with the latest information on issues such as Medicaid, estate planning, Individual Education Plans (I.E.P.), effective advocacy skills, legal concerns, stress, and maintaining a balanced family life.
All families are invited to be part of the Family Council. The Family Council provides guidance and direction to the Partners In Health Project. The Council empowers families of children with chronic health conditions by giving them a forum and resources to make their needs, preferences, and concerns known to the community.
