Respite Care is the short-term provision of care to children through age 17, whose families are in crisis or to foster families who may be called away. The short-term care is provided in the provider's home and is financially reimbursed. Respite Care requires licensure of the provider and the home in this county. Respite Care is not foster Respite. Good communication skills and a genuine interest in the well being of children is required.
