If you’re a caregiver, maybe it’s time you took a healthy break. Easterseals Northeast Central Florida wants to give you that gift of time on May 18.
Joey’s Gift Respite, an Easterseals program, is designed to care for your child with special needs between the ages of 1-18. Joey’s Gift Respite offers four-hour breaks on designated Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The next session will be Saturday, May 18, at the Easterseals Child Development Center, 1219 Dunn Ave. in Daytona Beach. The May 18 event will include a Mother's Day craft and special visitors from Hope Reins. Hope Reins pairs rescued horses and kids for one-of-a-kind experiences of fun and encouragement.
At Joey's Gift Respite events, trained staff and volunteers care for children in a safe and fun environment. Siblings are welcome, too. Plan to pack a lunch for all children attending, and if needed, include personal hygiene supplies or medications.
All caregivers must sign up online in advance or call Easterseals at 386-944-7816 at least five days before the scheduled program. Complete the enrollment form for Joey’s Gift Respite if it’s your first time attending.
We hope to see you at Easterseals for Joey's Gift Respite on May 18!
