Respite services provide temporary relief to a family/caregiver of a child who is experiencing emotional, social, medical, developmental or substance use difficulties. BYEP respite workers provide a needed break between the child and her/his caretaker by providing direct supervision and recreational activities that support the interests of the child, the caregiver, and the treatment plan.

As in all services, Respite is provided within a designated timeframe and can be pre-planned or used in times of crisis.


Service Components:

Planned Respite
These services are scheduled ahead of time and usually during the day. Bendel respite workers pick up children from their homes, work with them in the community and return them home safely. In situations where it might not be expedient or safe for the child to return home—if known ahead of time—the child is taken to an overnight respite facility that is licensed to operate overnight services.


Crisis Respite
These services are urgent interventions characterized by the element of spontaneity. They occur as a measure of coping with certain contingencies operating in child’s environment (past trauma, psychiatric symptoms, health issues, emotional dysregulation, negative effects of substance use) which exceed the family's capacity to cope.


Referrals for this service can come from the emergency room, school, self-referral, or community. Services may be delivered in or out of the home by qualified personnel.
