For Kids, more than medicines to heal!

NEW DELHI: Prolonged stays at a hospital is not an attractive option for adults, let alone kids. Now, a new concept explores whether children being treated for serious ailments can have something to look forward to in their otherwise drab routine of medicines and checkups.

A pharmaceutical company in partnership with a leading hospital has set up a 'fun centre' for patients admitted to the paediatrics ward, so that recuperating kids do not miss out on fun.

Billed as the first in India, the 'fun centre' set up at Apollo Hospital here is equipped with games, toys and a host of other recreational activities and aims at providing children a refreshing break from their treatment regimen.

In a child-friendly playroom, a decorated area integrated with the paediatrics unit, children, some of them suffering from serious ailments, can take their minds off their dull routine to enjoy playing with toys, board games, reading comic books, quizzes and make friends with other kids.

"Most of the kids admitted to the paediatrics unit are in for a long duration sometimes stretching to months. We can imagine they are suffering from serious problems. A recreation facility at the hospital thus helps them have fun and recover faster," said Aparna Thomas of Sanofi Aventis, which has partnered Apollo in the venture.
