Dear “Secret Santa”

Category: General

Pediatric Specialty Care has partnered with Elderwood Senior Living throughout Pennsylvania and New York for the 2019 Holiday season to implement a “Secret Santa” program. The Elderwood staff registered to be a Secret Santa, while the staff at six PSC locations helped over 160 children to “write” a Dear Secret Santa letter. Of those 160 children, their ages range from 10 months to age 19.

At PSC, we strive to ensure child experiences are as authentic as possible, regardless of any physical or medical challenges. The Programming staff and Child Life Specialists at PSC ensured all the children could express their wishes according to their individual abilities. Some looked at and chose pictures, some spoke their wishes while the staff wrote them out, some participated in crafts… each “wish” was recorded in a manner as unique as the children are. The PSC staff is so closely connected with the children, parents, and families on a daily basis, that they were able to express ideas for those children who couldn’t.

Another important aspect of the Secret Santa program? Ensuring the various beliefs and religions were recognized, honoring ALL traditions and values of PSC children and families.
