Blythedale Children's Hospital Receives $12,000 Grant from the TD Charitable Foundation
Support will benefit Child Life Program, children facing medical challenges
The Child Life Program plays an important role in Blythedale’s multidisciplinary medical and therapeutic approach to rehabilitation and recovery. Child Life promotes patients’ optimal development and minimizes stress by fostering a supportive environment in which children can participate in creative outlets, play, learn coping strategies and express themselves through verbal and non-verbal activities. These interventions help children master their medical experiences. For many children, their healthcare encounter becomes a positive growth experience through this type of comprehensive care.
“We are so grateful to the TD Charitable Foundation for its support of the Child Life Program at Blythedale,”
“Blythedale has benefited from TD Bank’s generosity over the years and we are delighted to continue our relationship,”
A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® and the TD Charitable Foundation provide financial and other support to affordable housing initiatives, financial literacy and education and the environment, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families.
The Child Life Program is essential to Blythedale’s outstanding continuum of care and Child Life professionals play an important role in the Hospital’s multidisciplinary medical and therapeutic approach.
