UPWARD SET TO LAUNCH FAMILY RESPITE PROGRAM < Return to News

The first weekend in March UPWARD will launch a Respite Care Program for parents of children with severe disabilities and/or children who are medically fragile.

Caring for a child with a disability often includes weekly medical and therapy appointments, managing medical equipment and medications, and handling the child’s self-care needs: feeding, dressings, etc.  Doug Carter, CEO, said, “This program will provide a break for families whose children are 100% dependent on them.   We are really excited about the launch of this program.”
