The Foundation is receiving numerous requests from hospital departments within the hospital for stuffed animals because of the “creature” comfort they provide to patients.

Research has shown that stuffed animals can increase calm and contentment in patients while reducing their agitation and anxiety.  Not only do children find joy and comfort in holding and talking with stuffed animals, but our elderly patients are able to benefit considerably as well.

Often these plush creatures can bring back pleasant childhood memories, especially for our dementia patients who may no longer be able to converse or recognize loved ones. They may provide companionship and entertainment to seniors who have limited human interactions throughout their day.

It is remarkable that a gift as common as a stuffed animal can go such a long way to lift the spirits of someone young or old while they are with us in the hospital.

Won’t you please consider bringing a little cheer to our patients today? You may click here to make your gift securely online.  Thank you and best wishes for a safe and healthy summer!
