Kaleigh’s family uses respite time to do the things that most families take for granted such as trips to the grocery store, doctors’ appointments, attending the other children’s sporting or school events. They even occasionally find time to do something just for fun and enjoyment.
“Time and time again over the years Helping Hands care providers have helped us get Kaleigh to a function that we have to attend and would not have been able to take her along without the care provider. It is great to be able to have Kaleigh experience these important family events like her brother’s sporting event or her sister’s baby shower,” shared Kris – Kaleigh’s mom.
Kayleigh gets all of her medical needs met as well as daily bathing and hair styling. She loves to interact with her care providers every day. Some of her favorite things to do are sing karaoke, read stories and take long walks.
“Our quality of family life has been improved because of Helping Hands Respite Care. It allows us to function as normally as possible. When we know that Kaleigh is happy and being well taken care of it allows us to relax and enjoy some of the events important to our other children. Helping Hands caregivers even made it possible for us to be present at the time of our grand-daughter’s birth.”
