To ensure your child has everything he or she needs to make their stay with us as comfortable as possible, we have developed a list of suggested items to make the process just a little bit easier. We’ve found that children or teens who bring favorite clothes and cherished momentos often have the easiest time adjusting to their new surroundings. If possible, consider having your child participate in selecting the clothes and other items they will bring with them so that they know what to expect as they settle into their room.
We recommend you bring a minimum of one week’s worth of seasonally-appropriate, casual clothing. Laundry will be provided for your child. Check with your case manager to get an idea of what type of weather to plan for. All clothing should be clearly labeled with your child’s name. Our facilities use health care grade laundry detergent, which is free of dyes and perfumes. If a special detergent is needed, please provide it in its original bottle. We will provide cleaning products, bed linens and towels.
Suggested clothing includes:
We do not regularly supply personal grooming and hygiene products so please bring the following:
Please bring with you any special equipment your child may require. If there is equipment that you need and do not currently have, please let us know and we will work with you to ensure your child has what he needs. This type of equipment includes:
Please bring along as many personal items as you’d like to help make your child’s room as comfortable and home-like as possible, such as:
Just like at home, it is important that your child settle into a routine during their stay with us. Please send an alarm clock with your child to assist with staying on schedule throughout the day.
Small stereos, personal computers, ipads and handheld games are welcome. There are televisions available in the common areas. Requests to bring other electronic devices should be discussed and cleared with your case manager prior to admission.
What Not to Bring
Even though your child will be in a secure living space and you will be asked to complete an inventory of all items that you bring to NeuroRestorative, we encourage you to leave items of value at home. In addition, there is no need to bring a car or bicycle as NeuroRestorative will provide transportation to therapy and community activities consistent with your child’s needs.
TIP: If your trip to NeuroRestorative includes air travel, pack all prescription medications and important documents in a carry-on bag.
