Respite Care and Child Care
Map view2 (Beta)
Respite refers to short term, temporary care provided to parents (or caregivers) so that they (and their families) can take a break from the daily routine of caregiving, and can range from a few hours to enough time for a vacation. Despite the guilt that parents or caregivers may feel, respite care can be very helpful in relieving stress from caregivers and give them time to recharge. Respite care may include services to take care of children, or older adults, or even parents.
