About Lauve’s Pediatric Extended Care
A Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Center (PPECC) operates as a non-residential, family-centered medical day care facility, offering reliable nursing care for children aged birth through 20 years with a variety of medically complex needs. Our center has a multidisciplinary team of skilled Nurses, Aids, and Therapists on staff. Parents can go to work or school, confident that their special needs child is cared for by a team of highly-trained professionals, all while participating in socially and developmentally stimulating activities with their peers.
Our program develops an individualized, comprehensive plan of care for each child. We consider the scope of their medical, social and developmental needs and how we can facilitate better outcomes. Each child’s plan of care is developed in coordination with their parent/guardian and their physician to address their specific nursing and therapeutic goals. Parents/guardians receive updates each day of the child’s clinical interventions, therapies, and educational activities. We schedule parent conferences to thoroughly discuss the child’s progress, goals, and any required parent education. If needed, we provide transportation to and from the center.
Children enrolled in PPECC programs may have various medical conditions, including:
- Cardiac Disease
- Cerebral Palsy
- Complex Medication Regimen
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Endocrine Disorder
- Feeding Tube
- Developmental Delay
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Genetic Disorders
- IV Therapy
- Kidney Disease
- Neurological Disorder
- Seizure Disorder
- Spina Bifida
- Ventilator/Oxygen Dependent
Our dedicated team provides specialized care tailored to the unique needs of each child, ensuring a supportive and comprehensive environment.
How Lauve’s Pediatric Extended Care Got Its Start
I am an entrepreneur and have been involved in many different industries throughout the years. My husband once said I am the Jack of all trades and a master of none…until now! I’ve finally found my calling. I’ve always had a tender heart for people that can’t defend or care for themselves, especially children. Special needs children are near and dear to my heart. They can be so vibrant and full of life! It takes patient, sincere and compassionate people to be their voice and to care for them. It is a very rewarding experience to be involved in improving the lives of these amazing children.
Lauve’s Pediatric Extended Care has a sister center in Bossier City, LA called Lauve’s Pediatric Day Health Care. In the six years that Lauve’s Pediatric Day Health Care has been open, there have been so many success stories! The program creates the perfect atmosphere for children to thrive. We have had many calls from East Texas families wanting to know more about the program and if there were any centers in East Texas. Recognizing the need for a central East Texas location, we planned to open a center. In July 2019, Lauve’s Pediatric Extended Care became the third licensed PPECC facility in the State of Texas. We are very excited to bring this program and facility to the East Texas special needs community!
