Our holidays provide a unique environment that allows “holiday goers” to experience things that parents and caregivers may not have the expertise, time, supplies, financial resources or energy to provide. In addition, “holiday goers” also experience significant growth in areas of self-esteem, independence, friendship skills, social comfort, peer relationships, adventure and exploration, and environmental awareness.
Parents and caregivers naturally worry about their loved one’s ability to cope away from home and about turning his or her care over to holiday support staff. Some also find it hard to admit they need the break they will experience while their loved one is away on holiday. But the ‘time off’ often helps families recharge and strengthens the relationship between spouses and between parents and their other children. Knowing that a holiday break is coming up can also help caregivers get through the inevitable stressful moments, and the rejuvenation experienced while their loved one is on holiday can help reduce future stresses.
Intework offers individuals the opportunity to choose one our many prearranged holidays but we also offer an Individualised holiday option where Intework can help the individual design and organise the holiday of their dreams. This can be with friends or just on their own. Intework can also support a family holiday by providing care staff during this time.
