This study used qualitative research design using purposive sampling technique. There were five (5) participants chosen from the vicinity of Imus, Cavite. Verbatim transcription was made after each interview. Necessary corrections were made and additional information like non-verbal cues was noted. Transcriptions were reviewed and were encoded in the computer. Colaizzi’s phenomenological method of analysis was utilized for data analysis. The study concluded that, caring for a cerebral palsy patient is difficult especially if the family cannot afford the special education and therapy the child needs. Therapy sessions help these children develop and correct their deformity. Most of the participants had a hard time in communicating with their child because the child could not easily express his emotion or wants to his parents. Although taking care for a cerebral palsy child was hard and tough, they still afford to give the child with all the caring they need.
