Creating Community Connections”

The guiding principles of respiteservices.com are:

1. To develop a comprehensive respite system.
2. To develop and maintain a coherent access process for families of children and adults requiring respite options.
3. To facilitate respite options for individuals that match their identified needs.
4. To work closely with service providers to advocate for appropriate service options to meet the needs identified.

Respite  services and supports are for rest and renewal of the care-giving family.  Respite is a flexible, periodic, short term break from care-giving that supports the caregiver to have opportunity or freedom to do other activities or no activities.  It is a time for rest and renewal to maintain and promote resiliency of the care-giving family.
