Guests (ages 18+) gather at our Creative Living home for a wonderful experience of fun, friendship, and outings in their community while giving their primary caregivers some precious moments of rest and renewal.
The getaway was amazing!!! … Not sure how he could have crammed more fun into a weekend, and he absolutely loved it. - parent
For over 15 years, the GetAway Weekend program at Creative Living Andover has provided respite care for young adults and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
Adult guests with developmental disabilities gather at our home, giving them a wonderful experience of supervised social interaction, and giving their primary caregivers some precious moments of rest and renewal. GetAway Weekends offer these individuals a chance to spend the weekend at our home for some fun and relaxation in a safe and nurturing environment.
GetAway Weekends are spent on the go...taking in a play, going out to dinner, bowling, visiting the aquarium...guests have a lot of fun!
Creative Living is a home environment with qualified and caring supervision and support. Our professional GetAway Weekend staff members are certified in CPR, First Aid and Medication Administration. Our overall program is subject to oversight from the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS). Their Quality Assurance personnel have been very pleased with our program. We received an A+ rating and another two-year QUEST certification in Summer 2015, the highest certification possible.
