You need and deserve a break.
No one can sustain being "on" all the time. Each of our soundproof respite rooms offers a comfortable queen sized mattress, fresh linens, blackout curtains, and noise machines. Optional eye masks, ear plugs, and therapeutic heat packs are available as add ons to your session. Best of all, after you emerge from your room, relaxed and rested, you don't have to make the bed!

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Respite Room?
A safe, quiet, escape. A place to take a deep breath, read, or sleep. A lovely parenting time-out. The Respite Room is your sanctuary to relax and recharge.
How do I prepare for my respite session?
We recommend scheduling your respite session as soon as possible or booking multiple dates simultaneously to ensure your desired session times. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow time to check-in, drop off your child(ren) in the on-premise childcare room, enjoy a drink, and begin to relax. Late arrivals will result in a shortened experience, as your session will conclude at the scheduled time.
You are welcome to bring a pair of pajamas and change once in your private room or wear comfortable, yoga-type, clothing.
Can I book more than two hours?
At this time, sessions are scheduled for two hour increments maximum as sleeping for 90 minutes has beneficial health. Sessions have also been structured to allow infants/young children a chance to check-in with you for comfort and feeding as well as provide multiple parents opportunities to rest. Should you desire more than two hours, please contact us.
Can I work during my two hour session?
The purpose of the respite rooms is to REST, relax, and rejuvenate. Electronics are strongly discouraged at the Parenting Respite & Resource Center as they distract from the time you deserve to focus on yourself. However, it’s your time to use as you will.
We also understand that sometimes you need to rest and sometimes you need to Get. Things. Done. Our Working Room sessions provide a quiet, relaxing space to complete tasks that seem insurmountable when little ones are under foot. Sessions 30 Minutes up to 2 Hour are available.
Can my partner join me?
The respite rooms are for one person only though your partner is welcome and encouraged to join you for any parenting classes, consultations, and/or events!
Do I need to be a parent to attend the Center?
Relief - Parenting Respite & Resource Center was developed to fulfill the needs of caregivers with young children. The services focus on overcoming common parenting barriers for self care, such as finding on-premise affordable childcare, a safe place to rest, and professional services surrounding the perinatal experience. At this time, the priority of scheduling sessions, classes, consultations, and events is given to parents. Please call the Center if you would like to learn more.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations of Respite Room sessions must be made 24-hours in advance of the appointment or you will be charged for the full cost of the session. We also require that cancellations be made by speaking with a Relief Parent Care Coordinator and not left on voice mail.
