Testimonials


After exploring options in Windsor and Essex- County for young adults with special needs, my family and I were feeling quite disappointed about the quality of program services in the area. However, when we connected with Abode, it was clear that this program was different from the others and would be able to meet the needs of my son, Nicholas. From the very beginning, we were so impressed with Heather and her vision for delivering a program that encompasses the perfect combination of life skills, community involvement and fun. Heather and her [team] have the passion and the energy to offer activities perfect for these young adults. Nicholas thoroughly enjoys going to Abode, and has been attending for over a year now. My family and I feel so comfortable that he is participating in a small, personalized, quality program that is helping to provide him with a meaningful and happy life. We are so grateful for Abode, and how they have changed Nicholas’s life. They have embraced Nicholas wholeheartedly, and we are thrilled that he is a part of the Abode Family.

Our son Tye began attending the Tuesday evening program in November, 2017. We had been looking for a program that offered a variety of activities and learning opportunities while at the same time a safe, respectful and compassionate environment. We found all of this with Heather and the [team] at Abode. Tye has made new friends and is always exited [to go]! Once he is done high school we look forward to Abode being a daily part of our lives for a long time to come!

My 22 yr old son has attended Abode Respite for a while now. I am thrilled to have found this program. We kept our son at home, as all the other programs did not meet our standards.

Abode is the place for our son because it’s a quality program, with a caring, enthusiastic, and energetic [administration]. [They] have so many good ideas for our children. They are kept busy with meaningful and enjoyable activities. My son loves to go and we are grateful to have found Abode. Oh I forgot to mention how clean and organized it is. [They] also [do] an excellent job at communicating daily in a communication book. Honestly, I cannot express how happy we are!

Our son has been attending Abode Respite and we could not be happier with the high quality of care and compassion shown to him by Heather and her [team]. The program is customized to meet my son’s needs with attention to detail and kindness. The outings are varied and educational and fun, from raspberry picking to feeding the animals at Colasanti’s, to planting a garden, to watching caterpillars turn into butterflies. Our son is excited to get into the car in the morning to go to Abode! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating a welcoming and warm abode for our son. I highly recommend Abode Respite to other families.
