As we prepare to open our new short term accommodation and respite centre in the Brisbane suburb of Yeerongpilly, we take a look at what respite means to families of children with complex disability and health needs.
Sometimes the benefits of respite or short term accommodation support may seem to be focused on the primary caregiver, to give them a break. And perhaps this is how respite was viewed in the past. Nowadays, the benefits for the child as well as the parent(s) or caregiver(s) are more widely understood.
