EMMA - Parents with child take time off

EMMA offers mothers or fathers of children with impairments the opportunity to go on a health cure together with their children.

During the day, when the mother or father is undergoing the therapies, Caritas caregivers take care of the children according to their needs. The health cure stay can be taken up by a parent who cares for a child with impairment from the age of 2, for whom increased family allowance is received and who is insured with ÖGK.

You can find more information on the page of the Austrian Health Insurance Fund.

Summer Activities in St. Isidor

Summer in particular is often a challenge for families. Kindergartens and after-school programs are closed and people with impairments need companionship.

For parents who go to work, this is often a difficult situation. That's why Caritas has its summer weeks for people with disabilities. We offer for children, teenagers and adults with impairments interesting summer offers.
