At Mike Shaw Subaru, we’re committed to doing good in our local community. We’ve worked with lots of organizations on the national and local level. In 2019, our local charitable contributions will be benefiting the Medical Day Treatment Program of Children’s Hospital Colorado.
Medical Day Treatment Program
The Medical Day Treatment Program is a joint project between Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Aurora Public School system. For kids who have chronic medical conditions or illnesses that keep them from attending school in a traditional setting, this program steps in. The Medical Day Treatment team works to help support those children and teens in their academic goals.
The Medical Day Treatment team has all kinds of professionals to help support participating patients. There are nurses, teachers, mental health staff, and creative arts therapists. These team members support patients and their families throughout the school year.
The program runs Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. throughout the year. The team works with the patient and family on a comprehensive initial evaluation. Once they match up how the Medical Day Treatment program’s services match up with patient needs, the team and the family can establish a plan for working toward academic goals.
Below is a list of services provided by the Medical Day Treatment program:
- Individualized treatment plans
- Monthly family meetings to keep track of each child’s progress toward goals
- Medical evaluation and daily nursing support
- Consultation with a psychiatrist if needed
- Individual, family and group therapies
- Daily classroom support and specialized learning plans
- Therapeutic setting
- Community outings
- Breakfast, lunch and snacks
This program is designed for students between 7 and 21 years old who have trouble in a traditional school environment. It’s a particularly great option for students who are transitioning out of the hospital.
