CHCOD offers the most experienced pediatric trained nurses and pharmacists in Dayton and surrounding areas who provide services to patients and their families being cared for at home.

Our nurses visit families at convenient times and we always have someone on call in case of an emergency.
We offer a wide variety of services from caring for children with long term chronic illnesses, premature births, education on safe equipment usage and prevention of diseases, to caring for short term recovery from injuries and hospitalizations. Our specialized staff understand how children heal and cope with illness and follow family centered care with compassion and expertise.
Children’s Home Care of Dayton is a unique home care service because of the personal pediatric touch we add when caring for our patients and families. Our skilled nurses truly get to know their patients allowing them to provide the best care possible. We also have access to the full range of pediatric specialties at Dayton Children’s.
