[ARCHIVED] Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado Participates in the Unveiling of Snoezelen Room at Patches

Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado participated on Friday, April 26, 2013 at the unveiling of the new Snoezelen Room at the PATCHES PPEC Nursing Center.

“PATCHES PPEC is an organization founded by three amazing women who gave their lives to make sure children with medically complex disabilities could get the care they need to live a normal life,” said Councilman Maldonado, liaison to the Homestead Education Committee. “I am proud to be here, and the City of Homestead is happy to support their efforts.”

The event hosted by Rise305, a part of Leadership Miami, a program of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, celebrated the completion of PATCHES PPEC Nursing Center’s brand new Snoezelen Room, a controlled multisensory environment for children with disabilities. The name PATCHES stands for Pediatric Alternative Treatment, Care, Housing & Evaluation Services, Inc. PPEC means Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care.

PATCHES PPEC Nursing center is a 501 (c) 3 Not for Profit Organization, which offers parents the peace of mind brought about by a program staffed by health care professionals who are expertly trained in the care of children with both sub-acute and chronic conditions. Our center is fully equipped and staffed to accommodate children who require the support of ventilators, tracheotomies, oxygen therapy, and feeding tubes, or who have other special medical needs. Supportive therapies, respiratory care, educational programming, and door-to-door transportation are also available. PATCHES PPEC provides up to 12 hours of nursing care Monday through Friday.

Fully licensed by the State of Florida, PATCHES PPEC has a well-rounded, expertly managed program that benefits both children and families with the highest standards of pediatric specialized care.
