Alex from Tender Care Participated in the Hernando County Hawks Coin Toss!

Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

The Hernando County Hawks invited Alex, from our Spring Hill Tender Care center, to participate in the coin toss on March 2nd! He got to go on the field, hang out with the captains, and shake hands with the opposing team. Alex had so much fun and we loved seeing the excitement on his face.

 

The Hernando County Hawks are an adult amateur sports organization based out of Hernando County FL. You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok to learn more.

Tender Care PPEC provides care for medically complex and fragile children from birth to 21 years of age in a daycare-like environment staffed with nurses, CNAs, and therapists. We are the first independently owned PPEC in the State of Florida with our initial center opening in 1988. This means we have an abundance of experience and knowledge in providing loving care to this special pediatric population. We have 6 Tender Care PPEC centers throughout Florida, with our newest facility located in Lake Park.

Lake Park Location

Our goal is to enhance the development of each child through collaborative relationships between families, physicians, nurses, and therapists. This holistic approach to care is carried out in an environment that allows the child to engage in social interactions with their peers. This results in thriving children, well-positioned to achieve their greatest potential. We also offer transportation at no cost and provide nutritious meals throughout the day. 

What sets us apart is that we care for and treat every child like family. We have passion in our hearts for our children and a desire to see them succeed.

You can follow us on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
