Home care for children with disability has expanded in the last twenty years in order to support the child and family at home and avoid hospitalization or long term care facilities. A case story is presented to show several barriers to home care for a 15 year old boy with Hunter's syndrome and severe disability. The case showed a need for further education and coordination of professionals in order for pediatric home care to be more efficient and supportive in Israel.
