This Is Why We Do What We Do ​

In the world of pediatric healthcare, finding specialized services tailored to the unique needs of children can be a daunting task.  Andrea Reitzel, a former HRIS/Payroll Project Manager, recognized this gap firsthand when her own family faced the challenges of caring for a child with complex medical needs.  Inspired by her experiences and fueled by a desire to help others navigate similar journeys, Andrea founded All for Kids Home Health – a company dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive pediatric home health care.

A Personal Journey:

Andrea’s journey began with her son Alexander, who faced health struggles from an early age.  Despite an uneventful pregnancy and birth, Alexander’s health took a sudden turn leading to surgeries at 2 and 4 months of age, a diagnosis of failure to thrive, multiple food sensitivities, and asthma.  When Alexander was 17 months old, the family chiropractor noticed a progressively worsening lazy eye and suggested that Alexander have an eye exam.  This resulted in the devastating diagnosis of retinoblastoma and later, 13Q deletion syndrome.

The road to recovery was long and arduous, with frequent trips from Denver, Colorado to New York City for treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).  Through this challenging period, Andrea, her daughter Madeleine, and Alexander demonstrated unwavering resilience and strength, ultimately triumphing over cancer.  Despite ongoing medical needs, including apraxia and autism, Alexander continues to thrive as a smiley, happy teen.  He receives daily therapies and nursing care.

A Transformative Experience:

Amidst the whirlwind of Alexander’s medical journey, Andrea discovered an opportunity to become a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) and provide care for her son while receiving compensation through a Colorado benefit. This experience not only provided invaluable support for her family, but also sparked a realization – there was a need for more personalized, family-oriented pediatric home health care services.

Driven by her newfound mission and passion for helping others, Andrea founded All for Kids Home Health.  Drawing upon her own experiences as a special need mom, Andrea sought to create a company within a less corporate environment that prioritizes compassion, expertise, and a deep, personal understanding of the unique challenges families face when caring for children with medical complexities.

All for Kids Home Health is more than just a pediatric home health agency – it is a place where your family is part of our family.  We are committed to providing exceptional care that honors the unique needs and strengths of every child and family we serve.  We hope to make a difference – one child, one family at a time.

Our Mission:

At All for Kids Home Health, our mission is simple yet profound:  to help disabled, medically fragile, and special needs children and their families to live healthy, enriched, and joyful lives.
