Very Special Kids Therapy Showcase Day

Very Special Kids Therapy Showcase Day

Event Date

Saturday, 08 October 2016

Victoria’s only children’s hospice Very Special Kids will be celebrating World Hospice Day by showcasing a range of programs offered including art therapy, music therapy and pet (dog) therapy. Very Special Kids supports more than 900 families across the state of Victoria (Australia) who are caring for children with life-threatening conditions. The organisation provides 24-hour nursing care at Victoria’s only children’s hospice, as well as professional support services for their families. Many chronically ill children who stay at Very Special Kids Hospice cannot communicate verbally or have difficulties hearing, seeing, moving or responding. The impact of art, music and pet therapy on these children is extremely beneficial. The Music Therapy program has been running at Very Special Kids Hospice since 2001, Art Therapy was introduced in 2015 and Pet Therapy has only just been introduced this year. All three programs are now an integral part of a child’s stay at Very Special Kids Hospice.
