Troubled Youth Behavioral Caretakers

Maxim Healthcare has developed a Respite Program to support families of children who suffer from mental health and behavioral issues throughout Los Angeles County - this includes the San Fernando Valley, and South Bay

Maxim's mission is to provide support to help relieve families from the stress and family strain that result from providing constant care for one or more children with Severe Emotional Disturbance (SED).

The ultimate goal is to keep the children at home, while reducing family stress. This is achieved by giving the parents and other family members their much-needed temporary relief. This will allow the parents to give more attention to the other members of the household. The parents will also be able to leave the home to take care of personal errands or even have the necessary "me time" that they have not experienced in a while. During their scheduled release, the parents will have the peace of mind knowing that their children are safe and being supervised at home in a positive and healthy environment.
