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/caregivers we support have sons and daughters that need an extra hand to help with daily things we take for granted. So ladies, the next time you shave your legs in the shower, think about the Mom that shaved two sets of legs that morning and will do this FOR LIFE ...or Gentlemen as you hurriedly shave your face before work imagine having to shave two faces every day, FOR LIFE. “Date nights” for parents with a 46 year adult with Special Needs living at home 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 at the Creative Living home are filled with fun activities for their adult son or daughter while they have a weekend of rest and renewal to "recharge" their batteries. Or a Wednesday Night Social or a Friday Night Out for people with Special Needs because their caregivers don't have a night during the week to take in a movie, go for a quiet dinner, run errands on their own, or join a book club. YOU can make a difference.
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! 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! WILL YOU Be one?
Please join me in making this your STRETCH gift of the year!
