In our respite program, we provide care to medically fragile and/or technology dependent children in a safe home-like environment; giving parents a much needed break.
In addition to overnight care, we also offer day programming during peak service times (summer, March break, Winter Break, etc). Special requests are also taken into consideration.
Our palliative program offers respite services to children who have been diagnosed with a life threatening, life limiting illness.
