Sick Child, but Have to Go to Work? Try the Care Depot

The scenario is familiar to any family: first the sniffles hit the child, then it progresses to a cough, and the cough finds its way to the chest, and before you know it your child has an all-out fever. Day care is often no longer an option, and the child certainly can’t go to school. But many families now include two full-time working parents. When neither parent can stay home, what’s a family to do?

Enter the Little Company of Mary Care Depot. In the Little Company of Mary Pediatric department, pediatric nurses will look after and care for your child so that you can take care of what you need to at work and relax, knowing your child is in the best hands—besides mom and dad’s, of course.

Decorated in a jungle motif, the Care Depot takes in your child any time, seven days a week. You can call to talk to your little one, or talk to the nurses for a progress report. We’ll provide meals, snacks, rest periods, and play therapy, depending on your child’s needs. All children newborn to 16 years old are welcome.

Care Depot hours: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Cost: $5 per hour (children of employees, $3 per hour)
