24 Hour Nursing Care

At Ferncliff Manor we provide a wide variety of health care services for children and young adults with special needs. 
The medically complex children in our care often require tracheostomy, gastrostomy, colostomy care, and respiratory care. Children diagnosed with disorders found on the spectrum of Pervasive Development Disorders such as Autism often have broader needs which require care that addresses communication challenges and often behavioral supports. 
The Nursing staff work in conjunction with the Medical Director who serves as the Primary Care Physician to address all healthcare issues as they arise comprehensively and completely.
