Roger Neilson House is offering a condensed Teen SIBS group here at RHN! Yes that is right…just for teens! All group topics and activities will be age appropriate for the teens of RNH.
The teenage siblings of children receiving support from the Palliative Care Team can participate in this support group called S.I.B.S. (Spectacular Incredible Brave Siblings). The group is facilitated by RNH Registered Recreational Therapists and trained volunteers. The group’s objectives are to create opportunities for siblings to receive support from peers going through similar experiences and to help decrease feelings of isolation. Art and drama are used to encourage self-expression in a fun, safe environment. Siblings are invited to share their experiences and ask questions of medical professionals. Topics are planned in advance and vary from month to month.
