Respite means getting a break from the responsibilities of being a parent.
Whether for a few hours or several days, respite care provides caregivers with
needed relief and is an essential survival tool. Respite enhances resiliency,
and resilient families are better able to handle the challenges that comes with
parenting a child who has special needs.
See our list below for respite care in Minnesota. Depending on your situation,
you may be able to make use of other resources for respite care including family
or other individuals of your choice. Contact your adoption agency for further
information on other respite care options.
