For families caring for a child with special health needs who need time away from the responsibilities, St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children provides inpatient respite care—ranging from a few days to several weeks.
Offering professional services staffed by full-time physicians, social workers and skilled nurses, the respite program allows caregivers to attend to their daily activities and take some time for themselves. Children join in recreational activities, specialized on-site school, complementary care and integrative medicine, and rehabilitation services.
