Resp-ite-(noun) a short period of rest or relief from something difficult or unpleasant-an interval of rest/relief
Our respite program provides temporary relief for families that are caring for children with complex mental health issues. Respite provides a positive experience for the child and caregivers. While families may take great joy in providing care for their loved ones, the physical and emotional consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Respite provides a break for the whole family, which research shows, is beneficial for everyone involved.
