In our experience we have found that it is important to strike a balance between personal time and time spent caring for others. For those caring for an adult or child with mental health challenges, respite care is a safe and sensible way to take a break from the pressure and stress of your daily care routine.

Respite Services will provide a temporary home for your loved one, with a qualified Access Services Host Family, capable of meeting all of his or her personal mental health needs. If you require short-term respite care for children and elderly from your caretaker routine, we also offer Hourly Respite. Access Services will send a trained respite services caregiver for an adult or child with mental health challenges or a similarly situated peer partner to look after your loved one for short intervals in your community.

Counties Served: Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Schuylkill
