Care Giving Services


Care Giving Services


Easter Seals Greater Houston offers Respite Services to help provide relief options to parents who provide ongoing care of their family member who has a disability. Many people with disabilities require 24-hour, around-the-clock supervision, attention and care, and many parents of children and adults with disabilities have low incomes and thus cannot afford to hire extra help to provide time away from their children. This continuous demand becomes a tremendous drain on caregivers emotionally, physically and mentally, and this care will remain constant as they grow older. Consequently, families of children with disabilities are at high risk for divorce, substance abuse, and child abuse because of the continuing stress of caring for the child with disabilities. Respite care is an assistance program for parents, but just as importantly, is a prevention program aimed at stopping some of the social problems that can result from the tremendous demands made on families due to the disabilities of their child or the institutionalization of the family member with a disability.

Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS)

CLASS provides home and community based services to people with disabilities or a related condition as a cost-effective alternative to placement in an intermediate care facility. The main benefit of CLASS is to help maintain independence and provide support for an impaired person living at home or in the community. Easter Seals Greater Houston is one of the organizations that provides case management services for the CLASS program in the greater Houston area. Learn more or contact us.
