What to Pack
Here’s a list of things you'll need to bring to Blythedale:
Seven days worth of clothes, including socks and pajamas. When you get here, you’ll see that patients wear their everyday clothes. Ask your parents to write your name on all your clothes with an indelible laundry marker.
Important Papers. Make sure your parents bring your birth certificate, social security card, medical insurance or Medicaid card and immunization record when you come to Blythedale.
Photos and a favorite object. Seeing pictures of your family, friends and even your pet will make you feel more at home and relaxed. You can also bring something that will remind you of a good memory. Maybe it’s last year’s school yearbook, the awesome collage your friends made for you, or the teddy bear your grandmother gave you when you were a baby.
What to Leave Home
You should leave valuables like jewelry and personal electronics at home. There are video game systems at Blythedale for you to use while you are here, and there are flat-screen TVs in every patient room. We cannot be responsible for the loss of any valuables.
Medications. You don’t need to bring any medications with you to Blythedale. We will provide you with everything you need.
