Helping people with disabilities is what we do at Easterseals, but we can't do it alone. One way to get involved is to attend a caregiver workshop, put together a volleyball team, sit on an event-planning committee, or pitch in on-site at an event -- there's something for everyone. Visit this site often for updated information on events in your area.
Another way to support people with disabilities is to volunteer your time, talent or expertise. Learn more here about volunteer opportunities.
Take a Break Through Easterseals Respite Grants
While caregiving is rewarding, it requires an immense amount of time and energy and often leads to caregiver burnout. Respite helps to keep family caregivers physically and emotionally healthy by reducing the likelihood of depression, anxiety, and isolation.
Through Easterseals respite services, caregivers can receive a voucher to be used to pay for the care of your loved one while you take a break. Whether that is going to dinner, seeing a movie, or reading a book - whatever gives you a break! The eligibility requirements for each grant can be found on our website.
To apply, click APPLY FOR RESPITE GRANT or call 302-221-2087.

Are You Prepared To Recover?
Are you prepared if a disaster causes you to leave your home, even temporarily? Will you have what you need to keep you and your loved one safe? This month’s workshop focuses on emergency preparedness, and recovering following an emergency.
Join us to learn what should be in your “go bag”, how to find emergency evacuation routes, important apps for alerts, even how to prepare for your pet. We all need to be prepared, but when you are a caregiver, it’s even more important!
April Cleveland, PhD, a trainer/educator with the Division of Public Health, Office of Preparedness will be our guest speaker.
The virtual workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 21st, at 10:00am.
The workshop is free but registration is required. Please email email@example.com or call 302-221-2087 to register and receive the virtual meeting link.
We look forward to seeing you!
