Thanks to your help, at the Homes we have been able to expand our family support program to even the youngest of our residents’ families.
Open days provide a special opportunity for children to gather with other youngsters who also have a differently challenged member. Frequently, the children learn new ways of engaging comfortably with their loved one via simple games, hugs and smiles. Our residents are thrilled.
On Open Days, family members have new shared experiences with their loved ones—and create happy memories until the next visit.
Family members who have participated in the Family Support Program immediately reach out to new family members, providing them with the support they craved until the program began.
Please know that you have made a huge difference in the lives of our residents to their families.
