Meet Child Life On Call
Our team is passionate about creating tools and solutions to empower every child and family facing medical experiences.
Katie Taylor, CCLS
CEO and Founder, Child Life On Call
Even though I supported children and parents day-in and day-out as a child life specialist, it wasn’t until I became a mom myself that I realized just how deeply terrifying and lonely it can be to parent a sick child.
I worked even harder during my shifts, trying to connect with as many families as I could. I felt their pain more deeply, and saw their fear more clearly. And when I passed parents in the waiting room at the end of my workday, I was gutted to know they wouldn’t have the help they deserved.
It was here that the idea for Child Life On Call began to take shape.
By leveraging technology, and putting education and support into an easy-to-use app, I found a way to empower patients, their families, and the care team, and expand access to child life services to people who needed it the most.
The key to better care is here, and it fits in the palm of your hand. Let me show you what the Child Life On Call app can do for you.
