What is YCare?

Modular training includes learning skills alongside healthcare professionals, trained in the YCare protocol and with expertise in care tasks associated with the disease/injury/illness.

Youth receive a handbook, tailored to the training, while healthcare professionals work one on one with youth testing out care devices and assistive technologies. Each session is peer engaged, providing the opportunity to meet other “like” youth.
