Tube Weaning Program
Capernaum is addressing feeding tube concerns.
Due to medical complications in some of our clients, many have had to be placed on a feeding tube. The feeding tube can be a significant cause of anxiety and concern for parents, with the most-asked question, “When can my child get off the tube?”
We have taken this question to heart and put together a Tube Weaning Program that will address parents’ concerns regarding the feeding tube. The program will identify where your child is in the process towards full oral feeding and work with you to get to that goal. If your child has been identified as appropriate for weaning, our team will put together a specific plan that decreases tube feedings/calories in an effort to work with your child’s body, thus increasing hunger and increasing oral intake.
Our registered dietitian will work closely with the family to provide support during the therapy process.
