Children and their families visiting Pathways Health Centre for Children will now be welcomed with brighter and engaging waiting rooms, thanks to the generous support of Smilezone Foundation and an anonymous donor. Over a single weekend at the end of December, the Centre’s main waiting area and aquatics waiting area were fully transformed with colourful murals, drawing boards, comfortable seating, iPad stations, autographed hockey jerseys, and sensory activities to engage and entertain the children and families who visit the Centre. Hundreds of children, youth, and their families will benefit from the Centre’s newly refurbished spaces during their visits. The Centre’s staff worked very closely with Smilezone Foundation to design spaces that children and youth would love and feel comfortable in. “Pathways is exceptionally grateful for the generosity of Smilezone and our Pathways supporter as these improvements are guaranteed to enhance the experience of our clients whenever they come into the Centre and as they wait for their therapy or programs,” says Jenny Greensmith, Executive Director of Pathways Health Centre for Children, “Pathways always has been committed to supporting children, youth and young adults to achieve their potential through the development of effective partnerships. Working with the team from Smilezone is a tremendous example of such a partnership in action”. “On behalf of our Board of Directors, Smilezone Foundation is honoured to help improve the experiences of the kids and their families during their visits to Pathways,” says Scott Bachly, co-founder and chair of Smilezone Foundation. “We hope the new changes in the waiting rooms will bring smiles to their faces each time they walk through the door!” Pathways is located at 1240 Murphy Rd, in Sarnia.
