 What is respite care?

Respite care is a break for parents and grandparents of children with special needs.  It is basically a qualified caregiver stepping in to take care of your child with special needs - whether he is in a wheelchair, has cerebral palsy, is developmentally delayed, etc. - so you can get a break to run errands, go to the movies, go out to dinner.

Its great for both the parents and the child.  The parents get a break that helps them re-charge and better care for their child and the child gets to see someone new but experienced with helping disabled children.

We always encourage the parents we work with to get and use respite care (if the medical system caused the child's condition, we make respite care part of the damages the family suffered).
