Testimonial from a Loving Foster Parent
From the time my family began working with NBN, the experience was positive. Initially, the Nursing Supervisor was able to quell my fears of having the nurses in my home as well as make me comfortable with the level of care my foster baby would require. The nurses that remained with us through the experience were capable, professional and caring. Each one of them brought their unique gifts and talents to Shawn, loving him and helping him to be comfortable on difficult days and to be happy every day. They not only provided excellent care, but also accompanied me on visits to specialists, often thinking of questions and interpreting information that I was not able to consider on my own. My fears of having the extra people in my home ended up not being realized at all. These women became part of the journey with this baby. I enjoyed each of them for what they brought to me and my family. What a wonderful experience all around!!! Thank you!
A special shout out goes to (I could not possibly choose only one!) From supervisor to scheduler to every nurse, all were wonderful!
NEW JERSEY WAVE is a summer camp for children who have medical needs sponsored by Voorhees Pediatric facility and funded by New Jersey Pediatric Patient Charitable Trust Fund. WAVE is a free camp for children who have medical needs such as the need for medical ventilation, trachs, feeding tubes, or help with daily care. The aim of the program is to allow this population to experience what many New Jersey kids enjoy at our shore. Time at the beach, boardwalk, arcades, picnics, campfires, crafts, and hanging out with other kids.
The community center of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, in Egg Harbor Township. This is located about 10 miles from Ocean City. The camp is not affiliated with any religious organization, but merely uses these spacious and handicapped facilities.
Children 8 – 18 or still in school, who are cognitively functioning within 2 years of their age level. Children will spend most of their day involved in activities, so each child should be able to tolerate spending time outdoors (within reason) and spending the day in his/her wheelchair if one is used. Hospital beds will be present at bedtime.
We have very experienced nurses, respiratory therapists, and doctors, including a pediatric pulmonologist at the camp. Staff is provided 24 hr/day. Any child with a stable medical condition will be considered, such as children with neuromuscular disease, lung disease, hearing or visual impairment, etc. our typical campers have consisted of children with trachs, ventilators, wheelchairs, BiPap, feeding tubes, or complicated and spasticity management routines. However; we have also had children who only need help with positioning and tube feeds. All are welcome, and we aim to tailor our activities to try to let each child have fun.
New Jersey WAVE was created to facilitate new friendships among children with specialized medical needs, enhance their group interactions, and promote networking with role models. Children have the opportunity to participate in exciting outdoor activities such as the boardwalk, beach, boating, and the zoo.
