From Our Founder

Respite care is essential for caregivers to take a break and recharge. From personal experience, I have found that respite care provides much-needed relief from the constant demands of caregiving. Awesome Respite is personal. Growing up, I assisted with the care of a family member with special needs. I have witnessed firsthand the burnout, stress, limited resources, and lack of trust in a caregiver outside of the home. I built Awesome Respite to give families the help and breaks needed for everyday life. Our staff should feel like an extended family member. Anything less is unacceptable.

Our Story

Our story began with a simple yet powerful mission - to provide respite care for special needs children and their families. Our team becomes an extended member of your family. We understood the unique challenges faced by these families and wanted to create a safe and nurturing environment where both children and parents could find support and relief. As we grow, we have witnessed the profound impact our services have on these families, not just in providing temporary care but in building a community of understanding and compassion. Every day, we strive to offer high-quality care tailored to each child's needs, giving parents peace of mind and children a place to thrive. Our story is one of empathy, dedication, and the belief that every child deserves love and care.

Respite care is crucial for families with children with special needs as it provides a much-needed break from the demanding caregiving responsibilities. From personal experience, respite care offers a safe and supportive environment for children with special needs to socialize, engage in enriching activities, and receive specialized care when their primary caregivers need a rest. It not only benefits the child by allowing them to experience new things and build independence but also helps the parents recharge and prevent burnout. Additionally, respite care can offers access to trained professionals who understand the unique needs of children with special needs, ensuring they receive high-quality care and support in a nurturing setting.
