At Rogers Memorial Hospital, the children and adolescents enrolled in Rogers’ Child & Adolescent Day Treatment Program celebrated with special activities that included a cook-out, a dunk tank, jewelry-making, and other arts and crafts. “It offers the kids a special day where they can celebrate the holiday while continuing their care.” states Community Outreach representative Janet Gatlin. “Most of the staff comes out to take part in the festivities, the excitement is contagious.”
The celebration provides a unique opportunity for kids and staff to interact in a different way, reenergizing everyone involved in the treatment process. A step outside the normal routine, while stressful for some, is helpful in further developing social skills, self-confidence and coping skills.
