Family Support Team Packet
A family living with a child who has been hospitalized may benefit from the help and support of other family members and friends. These individuals who are ready to give the extra help a family needs form the Family Support Team (FST). A FST can remove the burden of everyday tasks and allow parents/caregivers to focus on their child while he or she is in the hospital or in recovery. As a way to help organize these efforts, a special tool called the family support team packet is now available for families to use. This packet contains an explanation of the FST concept and step by step instructions on how to initiate the family support team.
