For more than 75 years, Easter Seals Southeast WI has been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them. Through therapy, training, education and support services, Easter Seals creates life-changing solutions so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play.
Did you know that 45 million Americans, or 21% of the adult population provide unpaid care to an older adult or a person with a disability 18 years or older? As National Caregiver month winds down, the need for respite and quality services for caregivers and their loved one continue on.
Easter Seals is proud to announce that last week we relocated our Waukesha Adult Day Program in the heart of downtown Waukesha, at 201 Wisconsin Avenue.
Caregiving can be rewarding and frustrating, fun and discouraging, heartwarming and heartbreaking.
As National Caregiver month ends this week, the need for respite and quality services for caregivers and their loved one continues on. See how Peggy found help, hope and answers for her daughter Candy at the Easter Seals Adult Day Program so she could continue to work and run her business from at home.
For years, Peggy has been trying to find an adult day program for her daughter Candy. Numerous
tries proved unsuccessful since the programs were not adapted to meet Candy’s needs. The results have been that, for the past 10 years, Peggy has been meeting Candy’s daily needs while simultaneously trying to run her childcare business in her home.
