What is the main purpose of respite?

The main purpose of respite is to provide temporary relief and support to individuals with disabilities and their primary caregivers. Respite offers a much-needed break from the demands and responsibilities of caregiving, allowing caregivers to recharge, rest, and attend to their own physical, emotional, and social needs.

Respite also benefits individuals with disabilities by offering them the opportunity to experience new environments, engage in social activities, and interact with trained and compassionate support staff. It promotes independence, personal growth, and social inclusion for individuals with disabilities.
