What is respite care?

Respite care allows families and other caregivers of Community PedsCare® patients to take a break or “respite” from caregiving duties for short periods of time so they can tend to other important activities. From graduations to short vacations and even grocery shopping and socializing, respite care allows family members to enjoy simple pleasures and complete routine tasks that aren’t so simple or routine when around-the-clock care is required. During respite care, a specially trained pediatric nurse tends to the child’s needs, providing peace of mind to family members that their child is in good hands.
