Once your child is admitted, the Unit Shift Coordinator will complete a clothing inventory to document your child’s items. Any extra clothing, bags, suitcases, etc. will be picked up by parent/guardian at the next visitation or shipped home if necessary.
Due to infection control standards and fire safety codes, Midwest Center will provide all linens and laundry detergent. Adolescent residents will be supervised by staff while doing laundry.
Midwest Center provides toys, games, puzzles, crayons, markers, paper and other art and crafts items. Specific questions regarding items to bring into the facility should be directed to your child’s therapist, and no items may be brought in without approval.
