St. Edmond's Home for Children
St. Edmond's Home for Children provides comprehensive care for 40 boys and girls with mental retardation, cerebral palsy and various genetic disorders. Established in 1916 in response to the crippling polio epidemic, St. Edmond's was staffed for much of its history by the Sisters of Bon Secours. Inspired by that same devotion to these special children, dedicated lay staff at St. Edmond's today offer 24-hour nursing and therapeutic care to meet their physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapy needs. A beautiful campus in Rosemont. PA offers a multi-sensory environment and state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. St. Edmond's Home provides social workers and counselors to assist families to be fully involved in the ongoing care of their children while in residence. Case managers, advocates, and volunteers from the Women's Auxiliary all collaborate to ensure the highest quality of life and care for each child.
