|What is respite care?
Respite care is a family support service that provides temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved in caring for a family member with a developmental disability and/or a child with a physical disability. Respite creates greater opportunities for all family members to live actively and participate in community activities while allowing caregivers time for themselves.
