The Easterseals Military Family Respite Program provides a critically important service for military families whose children have severe disabilities. Juggling the specialized care of their children with the demands of service to our nation, these families are at the risk of burnout and other domestic challenges. Our intervention provides families with “time off” from parenting and specialized support for their children, creating a healthy and stable home.
In-home respite care is provided for families who have at least one child diagnosed with highly specialized medical or educational needs. The program places highly trained respite providers in the homes of the families to provide up to 40 hours of respite care per month.
The military respite program is only available for Navy families.
