The Antwan Dominique Reese Foundation, is named after my son Antwan.
This organization was formed to assist the caregiver with accomplishing the NECESSARY
3 R’s of Life T M : REST, REJUVENATE & RENEW.
AS A MOTHER OF A SPECIAL NEEDS ADULT, I can tell you first hand what it’s like when you are unable to get the needed rest that prepares you for the NEXT DAY of care. As with everything else, your body needs to rejuvenate, may it be mentally or physically.
IN THE YEAR 1994 - My son Antwan was born 1lb. 2oz. - he has a diagnoses of cerebral palsy, autism and developmental delay. He is unable to speak in full sentences, but is able to communicate with the use of sign language. Antwan requires assistance bathing, preparing his meals and there are times when he is unable to clean himself properly after toileting.
MANY disabled individuals just like my son Antwan REQUIRE 24 HOUR SUPERVISED CARE.
As a caregiver, YOU need a break
to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit.
This BREAK also known as RESPITE
could be the difference between
the caregiver smiling or crying.
