Caring for your child, while rewarding, can also be exhausting. Family members who care for a loved one with a developmental disability can sometimes need a break. Respite care is that break. Organizations that offer respite services provide comprehensive support services and temporary relief from the demands of caregiving. If you’re looking for an option that can help reduce overall family stress, respite care might be of interest to you.
It depends on what you’re looking for and what an organization might offer! You could opt for in-home respite care, if you need an afternoon to go to your own appointments, spend time with a spouse, or just rest. There are also weekend options or even week-long respite options in the summer. It also might depend on how comfortable your child is being away from you for extended periods of time.
We’ll help you find the best care providers for autism, ADHD, learning
differences, anxiety and other developmental concerns.
