The third wheel ‐ to be a respite caregiver by profession
Stockholm University, The Stockholm Institute of Education.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-2214-3032
1998 (English)In: European Journal of Special Needs Education, ISSN 0885-6257, E-ISSN 1469-591X, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 238-242Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on respite caregivers (i.e. the professionals) and is a complement to previous studies on municipalities' and parents' views on respite care for families of children and adolescents with disabilities. Three parties are involved in the support service and this explains the title of the paper ‐ the ‘third wheel’. The paper is based on a pilot study and reports the results from a questionnaire answered by 10 respite caregivers and personal interviews with 6 of them. It appears that respite caregivers need basic education and inservice training in functional impairments, and that they require supervision.
