Learning Independence/Transition to Adulthood – English

Education and fostering independence are an important part of what The Painted Turtle Medical Team does at camp. We acknowledge that not every child will be able to participate in their healthcare or become fully independent. However, we believe that taking responsibility for your healthcare is an important step in becoming independent and transitioning to adulthood. Learning these skills can open a whole new world for children, whether they are able to attend a sleepover or eventually live on their own. As caregivers, you play an important role in preparing your children to be responsible for as much of their own health as possible. Here are some resources we have gathered to help in the transition.

Aprender Independencia/Transición a la Edad Adulta - Español

La educación y el fomento de la independencia son partes importante de lo que el equipo médico de The Painted Turtle hace en el campamento. Reconocemos que no todos los niños podrán participar en su propia atención médica o ser totalmente independientes. Sin embargo, creemos que asumir la responsabilidad de su atención médica es un paso importante para ser independiente y pasar a la edad adulta. Aprender estas habilidades puede abrir un mundo completamente nuevo para los niños, ya sea que puedan asistir a una fiesta de pijamas o eventualmente vivir por su cuenta. Como cuidadores, ustedes juegan un papel importante en la preparación de sus hijos para ser responsables de la mayor cantidad de su propia salud como sea posible. Estos son algunos recursos que hemos reunido para ayudar en la transición.

Mental Wellness – English

We acknowledge that the past few months may have been more challenging than usual. Life as we know it has changed dramatically and along with these changes may come increased worry and stress – not only for adults, but also for kids. The Painted Turtle Medical Team has put together some family-oriented resources to help you and your family explore these feelings. We hope that these resources are helpful and provide support to your family.

Salud Mental – Español 

Reconocemos que los últimos meses han sido más desafiantes de lo habitual. La vida tal como la conocemos ha cambiado drásticamente y con estos cambios pueden venir más preocupación y estrés – no sólo para los adultos, sino también los niños. El equipo médico de Painted Turtle ha reunido algunos recursos para la familia para ayudarle a usted y a su familia a explorar estos sentimientos.  Esperamos que estos recursos sean útiles y brinden apoyo a su familia.
