Medical Memories is dedicated to delivering resource materials to assist families during their life event /hospital visit.The hospital setting itself can be a source for both hope and distress to the ill child and his or her family.This new environment they face can feel like a foreign land.Medical terminology is a new language that is suddenly being mastered.The hospitalized child, surrounded by the sights, smells, sounds and rhythms of the medical environment, may feel transplanted into an alien culture. Medical Memories brings together families, children's hospitals, and corporate sponsors, to deliver My Hospital Scrapbook?. This customized scrapbook with medical terminology is a qualified resource for children and their families.It provides interactive activities, self-expression, and an educational resource in a documented scrapbook of their hospital visit. Our program is designed to support the Child Life Specialist, while networking with corporate sponsors to assist in the funding for such a valued tool for children and their families.
¡°My Hospital Scrapbook helps alleviate anxiety for both parents and children, providing them with a degree of comfort that¡¯s simply invaluable!¡±
