News From Caitlin's Retreat

Another Happy Family

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Please also send a huge thank you to Manny for hosting us in July.

This was the first time in a long time we have been able to go away as a family and really all enjoy it….and I think it is the first time EVER that I have been able to shower Tara without getting saturated myself, what a wonderful disabled bathroom – so want one this good for home.  It was wonderful to be able to include our disabled child in activities as simple as the swing…..even if I did get the key stuck…sorry. Normally holidays involve many hours on the phone trying to locate a venue that kinda resembles disabled friendly and then  they usually charge through the nose for the extra services .  Only you usually get there and there is a step up or the toilet is so small that tara cant possibly get in there with her walking frame or wheelchair let alone the assistance dog. Caitlin’s Retreat was perfect the disabled facilities were fantastic and the playground a real hit. We didn’t need to go out if we didn’t want too.
