Stollery Children’s Hospital – Child Life Department
The Child Life Department at the Stollery Children’s Hospital works to reduce anxiety, increase resiliency and lessen the long-term negative psychological impacts for pediatric patients and their families.
The Teen Room at the Stollery helps youth connect with friends and other patients experiencing similar health challenges. It offers a retreat from the clinical hospital environment, and gives teens a chance to play video games, connect with friends via the Internet or just hang out and draw and read.
After many years of use, the room is in need of a revitalization that will allow the program to expand its offerings. This includes the introduction of coping clinics, which will feature a 360-degree virtual reality simulation that allows youth to “experience” procedures before they happen. It will also support a music therapy program that aims to reduce stress and encourage creative expression through the availability of songwriting and recording equipment.
In addition, the revitalization will see the creation of multi-sensory environment, the addition of a second Child Life Specialist and the expansion of the Stollery’s Pet Therapy Program.
By supporting ATB’s Teddy for a Toonie, you’ll make it possible for teens dealing with treatment, illness or hospital stays to socialize, connect and simply be teens – something every young person should be able to enjoy.
