Caring Hands - Twin / /Triplet Cuddling
The Caring Hands program is designed to support the families of newborn multiples by providing an extra pair of caring hands that are hospital trained to interact with babies in a comforting, helpful, caring manner. Volunteers visit with the family once a week for 3 hours in the family home. Referrals come through Public Health Nurses / Acute Care Maternity / NICU Social Work who have identified which families would benefit from an extra pair of hands. Criteria is based on need; preference is given to those with limited or no family assistance.
