At TeamCare, we offer a variety of services designed to help the families of children with special needs. On this page, you’ll learn everything you need to know about respite services.
This includes what respite care is and how it can help both you and your child. We hope this article helps give you a better understanding of the caretaking options available in New Jersey.
Respite care allows caretakers to take the break that they’ve earned, without requiring a child to go to a full-time facility. This form of care can be provided inside the home or outside of it. What distinguishes respite from other forms of care is that it’s a planned, temporary break.
Respite care is ultimately designed to complement the supervision already being provided by the child’s loved ones.
Ultimately, respite care is good for both the caretaker and the child being taken care of.
It gives the caretaker a chance to take care of anything that may be difficult to do while taking care of the child. This can include things like work, home renovations, or a move, but it can also simply be the case that the caretaker needs a break.
While it can be difficult to acknowledge that we all need breaks sometimes, it’s nonetheless important to do so. After the break, you’ll be better prepared to begin the caretaking process anew.
Respite care also provides a change of pace and scenery for the child being taken care of. It’s good to get stimulation with different kinds of caretaking styles, and the child may be able to learn from these new experiences during the respite care period.
At TeamCare, our goal is to help the whole family. At the end of the respite period, both you and your child should feel refreshed.
You’ve come to the right place. At TeamCare, we’re committed to ensuring that New Jersey residents have access to the respite care their loved ones need. We understand how important it is for you to be able to take care of a loved one, but we also understand and support the reality that a break is healthy and essential.
