Here at Happy Camper Child & Health Care Services (HCCHCS) our goal is to turn a child’s natural curiosity into a lifetime joy of learning. Research has shown that children begin to learn as early as in the womb and they learn best through stimulating experiences. HCCHCS will strive to connect the family’s experience with our background to create an environment where children will have a safe and positive experience. In addition, we will promote an environment that will give children the freedom to explore and grow to become exceptional people.
HCCHC is a non-medical agency who provides support and respite services in the comforts of the families home, residential facility or guardian's home. Respite care is short term care that helps a family take a break from the daily routine and stress. It can be provided in the client's home or in a variety of out of home settings.

Respite care is an essential part of the overall support that families may need to keep their child with a disability or chronic illness at home.
Since not all families have the same needs, an intake coordinator from HCCHC will meet with the family to discuss and conduct an evaluation of the client needs. Our agency is designed to provide temporary relief to families. Respite care should always be geared to individual family needs by identifying the type of respite needed and matching the need to the services currently available, or using this information to develop services where none exist.
Once identified, HCCHC will match the family with a caregiver that will be qualified to deliver adequate services. HCCHC believes it is also important for families to have ready access to that type of respite, in an affordable form.
Regardless of the type of respite program utilized, the emphasis should be on orienting services toward the entire family. It is also important to bear in mind that the child will change as he or she grows and develops into an individual with his or her own personality and ideas.
In many families, it is common for children to attend day care or after-school care, interact with peers and adults outside the family, and stay with a child care provider while their parents enjoy an evening out. Respite provides these same opportunities for children with special needs.
For older individuals with a disability, respite can assist in building skills needed for independent living. Since the most appropriate living situation for many adults with a disability is in a group home or other supported environment, out-of-home respite care can enable families to test this option, explore community resources and prepare themselves and their family member with a disability for this change
ALL STAFF ARE PEDIATRIC CPR & FIRST AID CERTIFIED.
