Get Involved and Support Easter Seals

EventsHelping people with disabilities is what we do at Easter Seals, 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.

Easterseals Delaware and Maryland's Eastern Shore

Respite Grant Funding is Now Available for Delaware Residents!

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.

Caregiver Workshops

Easterseals will be continuing to host the monthly Caregiver Workshops in New Castle and Sussex Counties! Come grab a snack, meet other caregivers, learn tools to help hone your skills as a caregiver, and have some fun!

January
Thrive Through Transitions:
Changing the conversation from money to vision.

The subject of finances can make for a difficult conversation especially as you navigate through the different stages of caregiving. But it doesn’t have to be! Joan Sharp, a CFT, MSFS, and a Registered Life Planner will join us to conduct an interactive workshop to help caregivers communicate their vision to thrive as a person and not just survive as a caregiver.
 
Check out Easterseals Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore's Facebook page to learn more about the workshop - and watch it on Facebook Live if you can't make it in person!
