According to the dictionary, respite is defined as an interval of rest or relief.
Our respite service allows a person with special needs who depends upon you for daily care to remain comfortably at home when you are absent. It allows you and your family relief from the constant duties and responsibilities of care-giving and an opportunity for rest and self-renewal. It offers you and the person depending on you, a new and positive experience with confidence. You have the assurance that your Respite Care Provider and FCS have spent many hours in program development, planning, and training in order to provide a dependable professional service. Finally, you, your family and FCS work together to design your individual respite service specifically for your special situation.
