Helping connect our patient families together through fun activities expands their support systems, offers encouragement, alleviates feelings of isolation, creates lasting relationships, and creates opportunities for our patients to do fun new things that might not otherwise not have the opportunity to do.
The Jay’s HOPE office has a large play therapy room where patients can escape the hospital setting and relax while engaging in a number of age appropriate activities.
Family Resource Center
Our office has a large patient library for caregivers to use resource and inspirational books and materials. We also offer internet service to families use for research.
We have found that many of our teen patients have difficulty keeping up with school work and that the homebound program offered through the area schools systems is not sufficient to help them. We have an amazing and compassionate teacher who works with our students. She also consults with parents in how to deal with their school and how to navigate the process of developing individual educational plans with their school.
Jay’s HOPE maintains an apartment for use by our families in the event that the Ronald McDonald house if full or if they do not qualify to stay there. This is provided at no cost to families.
Laptop Loan Program
Jay’s HOPE has a program in which we loan laptops to our families to use while inpatient. This allows caregivers to research and also to feel less isolated. In addition, it allows students to continue school work and provides entertainment and socialization.
