The items that you can and can’t bring vary depending on the level of care. As part of your orientation, staff will thoroughly check all of your child’s belongings shortly after arrival. Any inappropriate items will be returned to you or secured by Rogers Memorial staff until discharge. If you have more specific questions, please contact our admissions department.
Plan on bringing enough clothes for seven days. Your child will need clothes and shoes suitable for indoor and outdoor activities. At least one pair of shoes should completely cover your child’s foot from toe to heel. Your child should bring his/her own personal hygiene items; however, we do have some items on the unit in case of an emergency. You may bring schoolwork for your child to complete during his/her stay if necessary. Most kids feel more comfortable with their own blanket, pillow and a favorite stuffed animal. (Children under age 12 are allowed to bring a few additional toys based on the program level.) Electronic toys, cell phones, CD/tape players, iPods and computers are not allowed.
