Not only is Recreate's focus on the young person with a disability, we also place high value on supporting the family as a whole. Therefore we like to offer programmes to the parents of the young people we work for. Currently we are offering our 'Mother's Retreat' respite weekends, two - four times per year. (as typically the Mothers are the primary caregivers)
These weekends provide an opportunity where Mothers can get together and share experiences, network, relax and be pampered for a whole weekend at beautiful Long Bay on the North Shore. As well as the friendships and support networks developed, a Mother's Retreat weekend from Recreate can provide any or all of the following: goodie bags, massages, beauticians, counselling services, yoga, art workshops, long walks on the beach, great food, dvd evenings and more.. As one Mother recently said after attending, 'I feel recharged, energized and ready to hit the ground running..'
