Almost November …National Caregiver Month, A Celebration Of All Caregivers We Know!

heather jo 2heather jo 1Heather Jo has attended ESGH Camp Smiles overnight camp since she was 5.  It was such a great experience for her and for us as caregivers.  It gave her an opportunity to make lasting friends and to be independent for a short period of time.  She learned many things that she brought home and used in daily living skills.    The volunteers and staff at ESGH and Camp Smiles taught me how important it was for Heather Jo to go away to camp and because of it, today I advocate to other parents and caregivers the importance of camp. It gives the families much-needed respite and camp is a huge confidence builder for the campers.  I am forever grateful for ESGH and the volunteers for the hard work they put into making camp possible.  Attached are a few pics from Camp Smiles and I think it reflects the great work ESGH does there. heather jo 4 Also, a couple of pics of Heather Jo as we are on our way to camp.  You can see the joy in her face just knowing she is able to go to camp another year, all because of Easter Seals Greater Houston. I am also grateful to them for offering case management services for our CLASS program.  Cindy (our case manager) is so helpful.  She offers information when I need it. She researches, calls us on a regular basis to see how Heather Jo is doing and always shares conferences and activities she has learned about.  She returns phone calls promptly, which is very important for a Case manager.  When we have our heather jo 3quarterly meeting, she is well prepared with the paper work and any new information she feels could be beneficial to our case. I cannot stress enough the importance of a Case manager going beyond what I feel is necessary to a case and that is what she does.  She is very informative and up to date on all the latest laws and rules.  I think this reflects the caring attitude of Easter Seals Greater Houston and their willingness to support their case managers..  We are grateful for Easter Seals Greater Houston and Cindy and refer their services at every possible moment. Thank you, Mrs. Fredia Bassham and Heather Jo
