What is Respite?
Respite, a break for caregivers and families, is a service in which temporary care is provided to a child or adult with disabilities, or chronic or terminal illnesses, and to persons at risk of abuse and neglect. Respite can occur in out-of-home and in-home settings for any length of time, depending on the needs of the family and available resources.
As a vital part of the continuum of services for families, respite helps prevent out-of-home placements and possible abuse and neglect situations, preserves the family unit, and supports family stability.
The Respite Locator Service is a service of the ARCH National Respite Network, a division of the Chapel Hill Training-Outreach Project, Inc. Funding for this service is provided through the generous donations of the members of the ARCH-NRN.
