About Us

The Douglas County CaCoon Program is a care coordination program provided by Public Health Nurses with specialized training.  The CaCoon Program is a program for families that have children with special health needs. CaCoon stands for Care Coordination to help parents find resources and to coordinate services.

CaCoon serves families with children and young adults (birth to age 21) who have complex health conditions, such as cleft lip/palate, spinal bifida, cerebral palsy, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic orthopedic problems, and other special health needs.


The goal of the CaCoon Program is to help families learn new skills to become as independent as possible in caring for their child with special health care needs.  A trained CaCoon Nurse coordinator can help families with:

  • Screening and monitor children who are at risk
  • Answer questions about a child's health needs and special care

  • Identify developmental problems early 

  • Find important special services close to home

  • Teach special techniques for caring for your child

  • Work with your child's primary care provider to coordinate health care and specialty services

  • Give support in times of stress and crisis
