Program: Respite Services

Respite services were developed as a way to help people with disabilities live in a community, or home-based setting. Respite provides a temporary break from care-giving responsibilities for parents or guardians caring for a child or adult with a disability who lives in their home. Individual Respite is a one-on-one service for the individual receiving care. Group Respite may consist of one direct care provider supervising up to three individuals.
