Creative Art Program:
The Creative Art Program provides therapeutic art experiences for patients and families in order to support healing, coping and resilience. Through individual art opportunities at the bedside, art groups in the studio, special events, and one-on-one art therapy sessions, patients and families are invited to explore, create and express.
Pet Therapy Program:
The Pet Therapy Program in partnership with Patience Experience support the psychosocial needs of children and families in hospital by providing them with:
- Opportunities to experience unconditional acceptance and affection between dogs and individuals
- Relief from stress and anxiety of hospitalization
- Normalized opportunities for socialization, sensory stimulation, and diversion that children can look forward to on a regular basis
- Activities that increase patient responsiveness and ease isolation and boredom
