Typical children grow up to be self-sufficient and independent adults with families of their own.... Men and women with developmental disabilities will always need some level of assistance to live active, happy and safe lives in our community.
The families we support have sons and daughters that will always need an extra hand to help with daily things we take for granted. So the next time you shave your legs in the shower, think about the Mom that shaved two sets of legs that morning ...or the Dad that is shaving before heading to work who has two faces to shave every morning for the rest of his life and that of his sons........... “Date nights” for a Mom & Dad with a 46 year child with Special Needs are infrequent...... try finding someone to care for your adult daughter or son who cannot be left alone... EVER. Lifetime caregiving..... These families never complain. This is their life and they OWN IT. Creative Living fills the gaps by offering families and individual’s opportunities for independence and respite.......Weekend getaways that are filled with fun activities for their adult son or daughter while they have a weekend to "recharge" their batteries. Or a Wednesday Night Social or a Friday Night Out because parents don't have a night during the week to take in a movie, go for a quiet dinner, or join a book club for a few hours. Things that typical families will "barter time' with play groups to steal some quiet time or a few hours to play tennis, grocery shop or even pick up a part time job.
I love Creative Living for the choices and innovative solutions they offer families as well as the opportunities they provide individuals with Special Needs to achieve higher levels of independence and self-confidence! But most of all I value and love the caring and thoughtful staff who work so hard to always provide the BEST Experience for our participants.
A Getaway weekend for an individual costs $350. If thirty five people gave $10 we can begin to change a family’s life!
So I ask for your financial support to make the lives of my friends and so many others a little better every day.
