Easter Seals to offer Saturday Social for adults with disabilities

May 14, 2014

Easter Seals and the Delaware Division of Developmental Disabilities Services are teaming up to bring Saturday Social to adults with intellectual disabilities one Saturday a month. Saturday Social sessions are for adults 18 and older and will be held in southern Delaware from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Easter Seals' Georgetown location at 22317 DuPont Highway.

The monthly event gives adults with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to get out of the house and get together with friends while also giving their caregivers a break from caregiving. Attending Saturday Social does not affect a family's annual respite allocation from DDDS. This service is only offered to those living at home with their family.

"Easter Seals is offering Saturday Social as a way to provide a fun environment for participants as well as giving a break from caregiving responsibilities for caregivers," said Jeanne Conners, Easter Seals DDS program director.

For more information and a calendar of upcoming sessions, visit www.de.easterseals.com and look for Caregiver and Respite Services. Those interested can apply online or call Natasha Shrieves at 302-253-1100 for the Georgetown program.
