Respite services provide temporary relief from the demands of care giving, which helps reduce overall family stress. This often enables families to better meet the needs of their loved one with a developmental disability. Respite can be provided in the home or out of the home, during the day, evenings or overnight.
Respite is an “indirect” service that provides relief to individuals who are responsible for the primary care and support of an individual with a developmental disability. When a family member, Family Care provider, or live-in/house-parent staff person has to deal with such things as illness, emergency, and care giver or staff vacation, respite services can ensure that their loved one’s needs are met.
Caring for a loved one with developmental disabilities and complex medical needs is a 24-hour commitment. That’s why we offer help for families meeting the challenge.
Whether you need a break from daily care, help during a major transition, a daily habilitative or recreation program that can provide specialized medical management, our services provide this and more!
The Respite Day Center can also serve individuals that are “medically fragile”. Admission includes an individual nursing assessment. We encourage families to call us and come in for a tour of our facility. Our goal is to support families of individuals with complex medical needs by providing a short-term alternative for the care of their loved ones.
