Medically Fragile Children and Their Families Fight for Change

By October 13, 2020 No Comments

Fred Johnson is the President & CFO of Team Select Home Care which is focused on shining a spotlight on the high-risk population of medically fragile children and their families.

Between the worsening national nursing shortage and the COVID-19 crisis, medically fragile children — and the family caregivers who care for them — continue to receive little support. Fred and his team want to educate the public and lawmakers that if they approve the Family CNA Program for their state then parents/families of medically fragile children can become their children’s caregivers instead of constantly missing work and losing wages to care for their family.

Fred joins Kristen Hall, COO of Mother Honestly, to bring awareness to the growing challenges facing medically fragile children and their families. He provides an eye opening overview of the current environment and how Team Select is bringing awareness to this topic and fighting for change.
