The constant stress of supporting a dependent child or family member with a disability can place enormous pressure on the caregiver, even to the point of jeopardizing the family unit.

Respite ensures the well-being of the primary caregiver by temporarily relieving them of the responsibility of providing care.

Staff is provided to allow for planned time off that can be used in any way the primary caregiver chooses.  They may decide to go shopping, visit a friend, take a walk, take a much-needed nap, or go on a long weekend out of town.
