Scott M: Content and patient

“A weekend of respite does more for our family than anyone could ever imagine.”

Scott 42, born with cerebral palsy, is totally dependent for care and daily living activities. With all his challenges Scott is a very content and patient young man.

“The Helping Hands program has given us a chance for some normality in our lives. It has also given Scott a chance to be his own person. When he spends a weekend at the Respite House he feels independent.  Helping Hands Respite Care has been very flexible and helpful in trying to meet our needs,” said Scott’s Mom Sandy.

“Helping Hands Respite Care came to our rescue on the occasion that we have planned a 4-day trip to Las Vegas. We had made arrangements with a family friend to stay with Scott while we were gone.  Our caregiver got sick and ended up in the hospital. We got the call while we were in Las Vegas and felt helpless.  With a few phone calls Helping Hands helped arrange care for Scott until an out-of-town family member could come and get Scott until our return,” shared Dan, Scott’s father.

“The emotional and physical repair a respite weekend gives us keeps us able to give Scott the care he deserves,” said his parents.
