Tender Care Attended the OASN Community Resource Fair

Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

OASN

We attended the OASN Community Resource Fair on November 4th! This event was hosted by OASN, located in Ocala, FL. Many families stopped by our table to learn about Tender Care PPEC and how we are involved in the community.

 

This family-friendly event had a variety of local community resources and it was at the Marion Oaks Community Center. 

 

The host of the fair, Outreach Autism Services Network (OASN), is a faith based non-profit. They provide annual events, educational programs, resource guides, referrals, and support meetings to those on the spectrum for autism and related neuro disorders in Ocala. You can follow them on Facebook.

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.
