Review for A Rosie Place for Children, South Bend, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family has been involved with A Rosie Place for many years. We are very grateful to have this wonderful resource in our community. Our 2 medically fragile daughters have been able to stay for respite weekends which has allowed my husband and I to have a break and even take a short trip to NYC, something we could not have done without help from A Rosie Place. And the girls enjoy tons of love and attention from the nurses and volunteers during their stay. They always come home with an amazing art project after their stay. We feel comfortable knowing the staff listens to our tips and special requests for their care. We can call anytime during the weekend and get updates, which is very reassuring. Aside from the weekend respite, A Rosie Place has been doing a great job of identifying resources in the community for families with medically fragile children. We have gotten to take our girls to some playgroups, learned about different organizations we can join, and get advice from experts and other parents. Today we get to take our girls to a Halloween party for kids with chronic medical issues at Notre Dame. We learned about this activity at A Rosie Place. We enjoy being able to involve our kids in activities, in spite of their limitations due to their medical issues, and A Rosie Place supports us in this mission!

Review for A Rosie Place for Children, South Bend, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 2 daughters who are medically fragile and physically handicapped have been able to spend a night in this lovely home with trained nurses and caring staff. It is a safe environment and a place where they can go to have fun. They require constant care and it is difficult to spend more than a few hours away from them. The O'hana Heritage Foundation's "A Rosie Place" is one place that the girls can go and we can a little freedom to enjoy a night out or relax a bit. They have a very dedicated staff and have put in much time and effort to do something new for families with medically fragile kids.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was able to have my 2 daughters spend a night at "A Rosie Place".

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hopefully, in time, funding and staff will increase to serve more children.
