-One of the mothers we recently served suggested that we make our communal spaces feel more home-like As a result, we have rearranged the furniture in these spaces to reflect a layout similar to a typical living-/family-room -When we started offering respite services, a parent suggested that we allow parents or guardians to be able to utilize respite and standard crisis services interchangeably As a result, we now offer four opportunities for respite per year, which are considered separate from the allowable number of days a family may take advantage of our traditional crisis nursery services within one year
