What patients and families need to know
Resources for Families
At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. In addition to any resources your provider may give you, our online resources can also support your ongoing treatment journey.
Child Life Specialists at Children's National Hospital are trained and certified to help children, adolescents and families with psychological and emotional support during outpatient and inpatient visits.
We have a team of staff members ready to help you make arrangements for your stay nearby while your child receives care. From hotels to corporate apartments, there are a variety of accommodations available for your family.
Our social workers are specially trained and licensed professionals who provide an array of psychosocial services to enhance the quality of care our patients and families receive.
Clinically trained on-call chaplains are available to patients, families and staff 24/7 for support, education, ritual and consultation.
Learn all you need to know as you prepare for your child's visit to our hospital or specialty care location.
Children’s National offers various support groups for families to exchange helpful information, provide solace to one another and offer tips to help in caring for their children.
