Mission Statement

Normal Moments, Inc. is devoted to supporting parents with critically ill children in the home, in the hospital, and via web resources so that they can spend as much time as possible sharing the most normal moments possible with their children. We will achieve this goal by alleviating the home stresses while parents sit with their hospital-bound child, by providing them with experienced resources to whom they can vent or who can be used as sounding boards either in person or by telephone, by reducing some daily cares such as housecleaning, lawn maintenance, and meals from local restaurants, by providing a consolidated location where they can research medications and treatment protocols via links to reputable websites, among other services, and by providing access to other service providers who can assist them with those needs not met by Normal Moments, Inc. All services will be provided on a charitable basis without consideration to race, religion, financial need, or any requirement beyond the medical needs of the child.


Normal Moments provides housekeeping, lawn maintenance, restaurant meals, house sitting, pet care, and other services to parents of critically ill chidlren. Parents need to be able to focus on their child(ren) during these times and to have as much extraneous stress alleviated so that they can be a source of strength for their child(ren). We aim to relieve their stress through the tasks we perform and the services we offer. Serivces are currently offered only in the Chicagoland area but we hope to expand as our resources grow.

Would you recommend Normal Moments, Inc.?

by George J. from Altamont, NY (May 3, 2010)
Normal Moments is a blessing to all they help. Patricia Fragen, the President and Founder of Normal Moments, is a dynamic and energetic leader, driven by a genuine desire to help others. Working with her is a joy and would do it again in a heartbeat.
