A chronic health condition is a health condition that persists for a long time. A chronic health condition is one lasting three months or more, by the definition of the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics. Chronic health conditions generally cannot be prevented by vaccines or cured by medication, nor do they just disappear.

Possible chronic health conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Asthma 
  • Cancer
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Heart conditions
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Spina Bifida

Your family support coordinator will help you and your family to:

  • Identify needs
  • Access available resources
  • Work with schools, insurance companies, and healthcare providers
  • Provide respite funding when needed
  • Create social and recreational opportunities with other families who share similar concerns. PIH staff also work with other health and human service professionals in order to develop a community support network for your family.
