The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital strives to provide excellent care to the patients and families we serve. Families, patients, and the healthcare team work together to ensure their hospital experience is as positive, nurturing, and productive as possible.
Our hospital’s policies and procedures are shaped with input from families and patients, and we provide several different ways to participate in various support resources.
A peer-based support network connecting families with similar experiences for emotional support and encouragement. Are you new to The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital and want to know what to expect from another parent’s perspective? Would you like to connect with another family who has a child with a similar diagnosis? Are you preparing for discharge and want to talk to a family who has already taken their child home? Or are you a family member wanting to offer your support and knowledge to another family? Family Connections may be for you!
Fill Your Cup
Fill Your Cup is a confidential support group for parents and caregivers of children with ongoing medical needs. These groups are open to parents and caregivers of both inpatients and outpatients. A variety of coffee, tea and hot chocolate options are available while caregivers debrief on the experience of helping a loved one experiencing complex medical issues.
Sibshops provides opportunities for siblings of children with special health needs to receive peer support and encouragement in a recreational group setting. Sibshops are available to siblings of inpatient and outpatient children receiving care at the Hospital. Children ages 7-11 are active participants in the group and children ages 12-15 participate as peer facilitators. Sibshops are a lively event in which children have fun, play games and partake in activities that encourage them to talk about what it’s like to have a brother or sister with special health needs.
