Now, both of Aedyn’s grandmas and Rita, a family friend and retired nurse, provide respite care designed just for Aedyn.
“It is a fabulous fit for our family,” says Cindy. “This way, we know we always have three other people who can care for Aedyn, and my husband and I know we can relax when he is with his grandmas or Rita .”
ChildServe Respite care allows Aedyn’s parents to take a break from the day-to-day efforts of raising a child with complex healthcare needs. They have time to enjoy regular date nights, run errands, and more with the help of Aedyn’s grandmas and Rita. The whole family even took a vacation together that Cindy says would not have been possible without the help of Aedyn’s respite providers.
As Aedyn got older, his parents tried out ChildServe‘s group respite options after having such a positive experience in his individual respite plan. At group respite weekends, Aedyn enjoys sleepovers with friends, trips the the zoo, and more.
“I have nothing but great things to say about our experience,” said Cindy. “ChildServe is an amazing resource; I wish I could tell everyone about it. We are so happy we were able to find a solution that was best for Aedyn and our family.”
ChildServe improves the health and well-being of nearly 5,800 children each year through specialized clinical, home, and community-based programs and services. We serve children with developmental delays, disabilities, injuries, and other special healthcare needs.
