Respite Services provides a period of rest and support to families. Services are available to both adults and children. We also offer various training opportunities to Respite Providers and parents.
www.respiteservices.com is an online resource which has been developed to allow parents the opportunity to search for fully-screened caregivers who meet their needs. The site also lists various training workshops in which people can participate. We encourage all families to input their information on this website even if they do not currently require a respite provider. Likewise, respite providers searching for more employment opportunities are encouraged to place their information on this website.
