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.
- Monitor individuals safety
- Provide support to families and individuals
- Opportunities to participate in community activities.
- Group respite
Services are often provided through the use of the following Home and Community-Based Services Waivers (HCBS): Intellectual Disabilities, Children’s Mental Health Waiver, Brain Injury, and Health and Disability Waiver.
Speak with your waiver case manager or social worker, or contact the respite agency for application details.
