Short Breaks and Respite Care
Richmond House provides respite care support in the family home, or in the community. Short Breaks for both children with disabilities and for siblings help improve family dynamics and have a positive benefit for both children. Short Breaks for both children can prevent family breakdown. Short Break Services are able to provide services 24/7, 364 days a year, planned or emergency, short or long term.
Short Break services are offered on a totally flexible basis and can be tailored to meet whatever need arises within the family home. We work with children, young people, and families, those with physical or mental illness and those who may just need practical support to see them through a particular crisis.
