About Quality Respite and Home Care, Inc.

Message from the President, Christine Shene

Quality Respite and Home Care, Inc. is a family-owned business. We have been involved with the disabled community since 1974 when my brother was born with Cerebral Palsy. We have endured the many obstacles and hurdles of everyday life that are familiar to most families with a child with special needs, so we know where you're coming from.

In 1981, we were introduced to the Special Olympics when my brother went to elementary school. After participating all throughout grade school and graduating high school, we came to the realization that there was nothing for him after high school. We built our own Special Olympics team for children with various disabilities graduating from the East Side Union High School District to keep them involved with sports, along with social and motor skills.

We are also a part of Home Care Aide and License Home Health Committees within CAHSAH (California Association for Health Services at Home).

As you can see, we deeply understand the need for personalized respite care for both children and adults with special needs. The help, and the relief that it brings for both parents and clients, can have a great impact on the entire family's quality of life.
