Respite Care Services


At Lexington Services, we understand that many factors can arise while caring for a child living with disabilities. Through our respite child care, skilled professionals at Lexington Services can provide relief to you and your family by directly assisting with the time and attention required to care for your loved one living with disabilities, all in the comfort of your own home.


Respite care is a supportive service that provides primary caregivers and families temporary relief while giving the appropriate care and supervision to an individual living with disabilities at home. With this newfound relief and personal time, caregivers will have the time to rest and renew the physical and mental energy that they deserve. With the convenience of respite child care taking place in the home, it is a great option for families who need temporary relief.


You will need to have trusted care in place when you need to step away. Even caregivers need their personal time and have obligations of their own to fulfill. Some of the situations that may require our respite services include:

  • Needing alone time to yourself or with a partner
  • You have another child or loved one at home that requires your care and attention
  • You have to step out for an appointment or social obligation
  • You have errands at the grocery store, pharmacy, etc.
  • You might simply work from home and want to ensure your loved one is safe

As a caregiver, it can be easy to be overworked, feeling overwhelmed, and exhausted. Respite child care can change this and provide you with the relief you need. Never feel guilty asking for help! Caring for a loved one with special needs can be incredibly demanding work. To take care of someone else, you must take care of yourself as well. Respite child care is a necessary service to assist caregivers in managing their own health, relationships, and limits.


Respite care may come with a sense of guilt for some families and caregivers, but do not feel guilty! Caring for a loved one living with disabilities is easier said than done. Here are some things that may have crossed your mind lately:

  • “Caring for my child is my responsibility alone.”
  • “I cannot trust another person to care for my child and leave home.”
  • “I feel selfish for wanting to have time apart”
  • “I feel guilty for wanting to take a break from my own child.”

Respite services exist for a reason, and we can assure you the best care here at Lexington Services. Respite child care is a crucial service to help caregivers avoid burnout, a decline in mental health, and stress. No matter what your job is, there comes a time when anyone needs a break. Caring for someone with special needs can be difficult, and by acknowledging this and accepting help, your whole family will benefit.

In addition to providing relief for caregivers, respite child care assists your loved one in developing socialization skills necessary in life by helping to cultivate stronger relationships with others. When parents or caregivers take time to themselves, their stress levels decrease significantly, and their quality of life improves as well.
