The parent of one of our guests said the following:

"Creative Living Getaway Weekends provide my daughter not only with time away from home, but the opportunity to be with her friends in a community setting that is apart from her daily life, and yet permits her to live like any young adult -- eating out, bowling and taking part in church activities. The tremendous independence she has achieved as a result of this experience with, most importantly, very well educated and high quality respite staff support, motivates her more at home to practice these new skills, and she returns a new young lady inspired to learn the daily living practices to be able to one day live her dream -- to be in a group home with her friends, independent of her parents."


For over 15 years, the GetAway Weekend program at Creative Living has provided respite care for people with developmental disabilities and their families in the Andover community, the Merrimack Valley, Metro Boston and Southern New Hampshire. Developmentally disabled guests 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. These weekends are spent on the go...taking in a play, going out to dinner, bowling, visiting the aquarium...guests have a lot of fun!
