Abstract

Respite care throws a lifeline to parents of children with intellectual disabilities by giving them the time and space to recharge their batteries. The benefits of such a service are obvious: it enables parents to carry on caring for their child at home by offering temporary relief from the burden of caring. Bernardine Wilkie and Owen Barr report on the findings of a study that sought parents' views on a respite care service and how it might be developed further
