Parents of children and young people with mental or physical disabilities as well as sensory or multiple disabilities find a wide range of family support services at the Kindergästehaus zum Verschnaufen (children's guest house), such as short-term care, assistance at home, accompaniment to school and daycare. These programs allow for a breather in everyday life and to gather new strength. For the children and adolescents, the stay becomes an unforgettable experience.
