$5 can go towards paying for a cleaner or handyman to get on top of neglected housework or home repairs. When your child is sick, hours are eaten up in hospital wards, waiting rooms and in the car getting to appointments. As a result home duties are often neglected.
A messy home, overgrown garden or leaking tap can contribute to a parents feeling that everything is out of their control. Sometimes something as simple as a mould-free bathroom can make things a little better for those living with the stress and anxiety of having a seriously ill child. This is why TLC for Kids responds to request for services that not only assist the child but also provide emotional and practical support to parents and siblings.
