Respite Care of San Antonio cares for children with special needs and complex medical conditions, such as congenital birth defects (e.g., spina bifida, Down syndrome, and heart defects), neonatal abstinence syndrome, fetal drug syndrome, abusive head trauma, cerebral palsy, and autism.
Children with complex medical conditions often require daily medical treatments that may disqualify them from enrolling in traditional childcare programs. Without a childcare option, children fall behind developmentally, and parents risk falling into financial distress while operating as full-time caregivers.
Respite Care of San Antonio is the only organization in Texas that provides childcare programs and state-licensed residential homes for children with complex medical conditions. A unique combination of on-site medical care, coordinated therapy, and skilled caregiving brings health & wellness to RCSA's children.
