Respite

Give yourself the break you deserve and get your child the help they need! Check out these great respite and support options!


What is Respite?

Respite:

  1. “providing temporary care in relief of a primary caregiver”
  2.  “a period of rest or relief from something difficult”

Therapeutic respite is used to:

  • allow parents to have normal adult relationships
  • give parents and healthy siblings a much-needed break
  • allow healthy siblings to get in some Mom & Dad time
  • lift the burden and help the child continue toward healing
  • motivate the child to appreciate and reach toward parents

Respite is a huge and very valuable part of the healing process for a child with RAD. If you as a parent are too exhausted and emotionally burned out, you will not be able to give your child the amount of help and love they need.

If your child needs an attitude adjustment, respite is a great place for them to sort out their feelings and work through and solve problems.

I provide:

  • In-home therapeutic respite
  • Therapeutic respite care in my own home 
  • Therapeutic parenting coaching
  • Phone, Skype, and email support packages for Awesome Parents

Contact me at karen@nextgenerationattachment.org if you would like to book one of these services, get more information, ask questions, or see a pricing list. Payment plans are available on all respite stay and placements over 5 days in length. Respite is available year-round and will be tailored to the needs of your family and child(ren).

My goal for your child while having them in respite is to have them work on being respectful, responsible, and fun to be around, practice life skills, write about their feelings and how to handle them in an okay-way and to motivated them to get well and be a family-kid.

While in respite there will be:

  • a therapeutic (healing) environment
  • no bonding activities
  • no extra privileges
  • tight (controlled) structure

Parents will be lifted up and honoured for the Awesome people they are!

 

“Parents are the center of a child’s universe. When parents forget to take care of themselves, falter and wear out, the family wears out. And the children go nowhere.” (Foster W. Cline, 1996)
