Our Respite Workers
We strive to provide each family with the perfect Respite Worker based on the client’s needs and the Respite Worker’s background. Most of our employees are currently going to school to work in special needs related fields such as OT, Speech, PT, Special Ed, Nursing, etc. Providing the client and family with rest and relaxation will in turn help to preserve the structure of the family unit. The majority of our staff are currently going to school for areas relating to special needs- occupational therapy, special education, speech therapy, nursing, teaching, child development, etc. We have found that hiring staff that are energetic, caring, and truly interested in dedicating their lives to serving those with special needs provides for the best possible care and mentoring of our clients.
