Children’s Books: Help Kids Understand
When children have a family member on TPN or are on TPN themselves, they have questions that can be hard to answer. ThriveRx offers age-appropriate books that help you address the basics of nutrition support and central venous catheter care in a loving way. Most importantly, they show that people on TPN live engaging and fulfilling lives.
My Special Line
This “read-to-me” book helps younger children understand the basics of TPN and central venous line care:
- Treating the line as a part of their body
- Keeping the line safe, clean, and dry
- Washing their hands before they handle the line
My Special Line uses rhyme and repetition to make its message memorable.
I have found both books to be useful tools in helping my grandchildren to know what a central line is and why I need it to sustain life.
Let’s Learn About Central Lines
This book is for elementary-aged children (early readers). It helps them understand the basics of TPN and a central venous catheter (CVC):
- Understanding what a CVC is
- Learning who might need a CVC
- Keeping the CVC safe, clean, and dry
- Taking an active role in caring for their CVC
ThriveRx provides these books at no charge to help people explain CVCs and home parenteral nutrition to their children.
The Optum StrapWrap: A medical-alert wrap
The Optum® StrapWrap® is a medical-alert wrap that attaches to a seatbelt, backpack or other strap. It stores medical and personal information.
The StrapWrap’s red color and medical logo help first responders find the patient’s information quickly.
We can give a free StrapWrap to people who are on nutrition support. We’ll talk with you or your loved one to fill out the form before we send the StrapWrap. This way, it’s ready when you get it.
We can give each patient one StrapWrap per year.
To request any of our products, please use this form. A member of our team will be in contact to verify your shipping information and request. Our resources are designed to support individuals on parenteral nutrition living in the United States.
