Here at Emerald Waterways, we proudly support Reuben’s Retreat, a charity dedicated to supporting families and children living with life-limiting or life-threatening illness, by providing them with help and assistance through a wide and varied range of services.
Working holistically, the retreat offers an outstanding selection of support and services catering for the individual specifically, to ensure the care they receive is relevant to their needs. From person-centred counselling, well-being treatments and therapies, to activity days, short breaks and support groups, their work nationwide means access to care is always available.
Having celebrated their fifth anniversary in April 2017, their next big challenge is to begin fundraising for a hydrotherapy pool and changing suite to introduce a physical therapy resource for children with complex requirements, with the hope that one day they will be able to expand their state-of-the-art day-care area into a sensory music, arts and crafts zone.
This wonderful charity not only offers children the opportunity for effective therapy to help them cope with the side effects of their illness, but also gives parents the respite, so that they can recharge their batteries and meet other families in similar positions, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being cared for appropriately.
