Objective

 To understand parents’ perceptions of two types of respite services

Key Notes/Findings:

  • Families reported that they ‘did not know how they coped’ before receiving respite services
  • Irrespective of type, consistency in providers enhanced trust and feeling of happiness among parents
  • Concerns around privacy for home provision and potential conflicts over who held the power in the parent-provider relationship were noted
  • Hospice care created challenges related to ensuring equipment needs were met
