Join us as Rose-Anne Partridge shares about the importance and the how-tos of self-care for parents of children with special needs.
As a mother of a 15-year-old with special needs, Rose-Anne understood that she didn't have all the answers.
One of the biggest problems facing families who have children with special needs is self-care. Who is taking care of the caregiver? We tend to put all our energy and efforts into helping our children, and in the long run, we find ourselves exhausted and burned out.
Rose-Anne believes those answers need to come from the individual and from the families and our communities. And she believes that as families who have children with special needs, we need to come together to help each other reach those goals and create those innovative ideas.
Let’s come together and continue to have HOPE!
