What to Pack
To make packing for your trip to Blythedale a piece of cake, we’ve put together a list of the things you will need when you get here.
Seven days worth of clothes, including socks and pajamas. When you get here, you’ll see that kids wear their everyday clothes. Ask your parents to write your name inside all your clothes with an indelible laundry marker.
Important Papers. Make sure your parents bring your birth certificate, social security card, medical insurance or Medicaid card and immunization record when you come to Blythedale.
Photos. Seeing pictures of your family, friends and even your pet (cat, dog, tarantula) will make you feel more at home and relaxed when you get here.
A favorite object. You can bring a favorite blanket or stuffed animal to cuddle. Parents of babies may also bring a special crib mobile, though we ask you to limit stuffed animals as they can clutter the crib.
What to Leave Home
You should leave valuables like jewelry and personal electronics at home. There are video game systems at Blythedale for you to use while you are here, and there are flat-screen TVs in every patient room. We cannot be responsible for the loss of any valuables.
Medications. You don’t need to bring any medications with you to Blythedale. We will provide you with everything you need.
