Hayleigh lives with her mother and her younger sister in Houston. Her mother is her primary caretaker. Hayleigh’s circumstances cause her to be physically uncomfortable in public places, which cause loud outbursts when she is around large groups of people. Hayleigh unable feed or care for her personal needs. Because of her disabilities, Hayleigh requires constant medical attention, which entails three different doctor’s appointments each week assuring a better quality of life. If Hayleigh becomes ill, generally she has to be admitted to the hospital. Both Hayleigh and her mom and sister benefit from Be An Angel’s Alternatives for Angels program. This at-home respite care service provides each medically fragile child 12 hours a month of at-home care from a professional caretaker. Hayleigh’s mother can now attend her other daughter’s parent-teacher conference, or run a quick errand knowing that Hayleigh is in good hands. Through Alternatives for Angels, the supporters of Be An Angel provide to these hard working parents a chance to catch their breath…. Even if it is just for a few hours each month!
