Respite care does apply for adults with disabilities and can have various benefits:
- Reduce stress and help maintain family relations by building time to rejuvenate
- Contribute to good physical and emotional health and allow individuals to remain in the home while receiving needed care
- Help families through periods of crisis and adjustment
The Arc Palm Beach County Respite Services has trained workers who provide center-based and compassionate in-home care to children with a developmental delay that allows parents the opportunity to balance their lives while decreasing stress and recharging.
