Not all patients are well enough to step out of their room to visit the Main Playroom or Radio Lollipop. Young patients benefit tremendously from play distraction and soothing company. During the day, parents may be at work, their nurses busy, or their Child Life Specialist visiting other patients. That’s where the Bedside Buddy Volunteers come in to entertain at their bedside with a variety of games, arts and craft activities, coloring and reading books, bead projects and many other fun toys. This program allows patients to participate in an interactive session contributing to the healing process.
