Child Life Services
Children are sensitive to stress and/or a change to their daily routine. The Mary Bridge Child Life Services Team supports children and their families during their stay at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital, as well as during some outpatient visits and procedures. The goal of Child Life is to minimize the stress and anxiety of children and families receiving medical care.
“Hospitalization and medical experiences can be stressful for patients and their families. We provide tools to empower our patients and to help them cope,” Child Life Specialist Jill Whelan says, “As development specialists, we understand how these experiences can impact a child's ability to cope and can hinder normal growth and development."
