Mentor Support Program
Connecting families experienced at managing a child’s complex medical care with those of more recently diagnosed children, this program provides valuable guidance and support navigating the medical care system as well as family and financial hurdles.
High-quality tote bags for parents and backpacks for children are stocked with comfort items for long and unexpected hospital stays — including books, toys and Kindle Fires — as well as organizational resources for managing the child’s medical care.
Caring for an ill child can be devastating. But with the right tools and resources, families will find a community of people and programming to support them along their journey. We work together to address the fragmentation of support and unequal access to care that families of children with medical complexity face. Better2gether understands, supports, and equips families of children with medical complexities with the tools to care for their child. Resource Coordination is the link to providing a whole health approach to care.
Caring for a child with medical complexity generates a financial burden on families, and we assist families with associated costs of seeking treatment such as meals, transportation expenses and more.
Moments Caregiver Support Group
A partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, this monthly support group provides opportunities for caregivers to connect in a safe, nurturing and supportive community through workshops, speakers and other educational opportunities.
Virtual Speaker Series
Better2gether is working with community partners to bring you speakers to address topics related to caring for your medically complex child. Each month we will address a new topic and have a new speaker. Each event is free of charge but requires a RSVP to receive the individual login link.
Monthly group sessions offer the medically complex child and their siblings an opportunity to explore a variety of instruments, learn different genres of music and incorporate dancing and art. We also offer one-on-one sessions with a certified music therapist.
