We love Respite Connection!Â Respite Connection is like a second family to usâ¦with the events they hold, the summer splash at the water park each year, the Christmas party at the bowling alley with Santa and every activity in between, Respite Connection gives our family the support we need in the community. Â We have been extra lucky and have had our sonâs provider for 7 years now. Â She is a part of our family and have enjoyed sharing in her milestones as well as her sharing in ours.Â Respite means more than just a babysitter to us, at Respite Connection youâre family.

The services Iâve received through Respite Connection really helped to improve the quality of my familyâs life. I was able to get a break and know that my son was receiving quality care.Â Respite Connection allowed me to refer my own staff for hire, and the process wasÂ quick and easy.Â I also liked that I couldÂ schedule shifts directly with my staff, without have to go through an in-office scheduler.Â Â Iâve been so happy with Respite Connectionâ¦thank you!
âThe staff that come into our home from Respite Connection helps provide a sense of balance to our whole family.Â I have staff help in our home, to be here during the busy evening time when we are typically running errands, working on homework and making dinner. Respite Connection does an excellent job matching really wonderful friends (staff) to our son and our family.Â I am so grateful for their dedication.â
