Kentucky Children's Hospital

The Child Life Program is a specialized service providing play opportunities for patients of the Kentucky Children's Hospital and their families. Child Life services are a vital part of a child’s medical treatment.

 

Our Child Life specialists work directly with the children and their families to provide therapeutic interventions that help children and families master medical experiences and treatments. These interventions include:

 

-Developmentally supportive play opportunities

-Medical procedure support and positive coping skills

-Emotional support for siblings and families

 

The Child Life staff and volunteers also offer a variety of activities including special programs in the Treehouse Playroom; individualized activities in the patient's own room; assisting families in using technology to find information; and encouraging reading.

 

Help us continue to provide the highest level of care to Kentucky’s smallest patients. Your gift to the Child Life Fund provides resources for our specially trained child life specialists to help a child cope with their illness. Make an investment today in the health of the next generation of Kentuckians.
