St Anne's learning disabilities respite care St Anne's respite care services are available to provide families and carers the opportunity to take a break from the responsibility of caring for somebody else. The respite periods are of a limited duration for the benefit of the carer and the dependent person. The distinctive feature of respite care is that the break should be a positive experience for the cared-for person and the carer in order to enhance the quality of their lives and their relationship.
