Partnership with you is enabling us to address the
need for family supporting groups that would help to overcome the devastating impact on the social and mental health of many families with disabled persons as the result of isolation, the Four Homes of Mercy started to implement a family support program that
is planned to focus on the following aspects:
1. Creating opportunities to socialize and building friendships.
2. Providing a listening ear.
3. Providing information, advice, and emotional and social support.
4. Providing a regular meeting place.
5. Organizing activities such as joint excursions and family days out.
Subject:Update report for GlobalGiving project 51484
Your generosity has created excitement, eagerness, hope! The family support group will begin mid-March. In order to best meet the needs of the participants, our social worker is presently interviewing them to ask what they want from the group. ....The chance to share the challenge of having a severely impaired loved one with those who truly understand is something they have never had! The opportunity to learn from other families how they cope with the social stigma and isolation! Hearing from other families, as well as from our professionals on ways of communicating with loved ones who cannot speak, responding in the most helpful way to certain behaviors, of teaching skills such as self-feeding, how to more frequent and better home visits is a cherished opportunity!
Please know that your gift will greatly enhance the lives of our participants, and their loved ones.
