Are you the parent or caregiver for a child with a Serious Emotional Disorder (SED) between the ages of 4 and 18? Do you ever feel burnt out or wish you could have a bit of a break to focus on your own life?
Our Respite program allows you as parent or caregiver to take some time for yourself. You get the opportunity to focus on self-care (or errands, or whatever!) while your child goes out with a trained respite worker for fun and educational activities.
- Individual hourly activities
- Group recreational activities
- Weekly structured life-skills education opportunities for 14-18 year olds via Teen Challenge [link]
- Summer camp programs
- Opportunities for self-care for you!
What is the program like?
Once enrolled, you can choose individual and/or group activities based on your situation. You can do whatever you want with your spare time while your kid or teen is out with a trained respite worker! Some activities are purely for fun, while others help your child learn life skills and socialization.
