Respite services and supports are for rest and renewal of the care-giving family. Respite is a flexible, periodic, short term break from care-giving that supports the caregiver to have opportunity or freedom to do other activities or no activities. It is a time for rest and renewal to maintain and promote resiliency of the care-giving family.
