Respite services provide temporary relief from every day demands, helping to reduce overall family stress and improve the quality of life for the entire household. This program gives care givers time to accomplish necessary tasks, such as grocery or clothes shopping, or ensure that when an illness or emergency occurs, there is someone to care for the service recipient. Respite service provides a safe and healthy environment for an individual during the day, evenings, or weekends, within the home or outside of the home.
This is considered an "indirect" service because it provides relief to individuals who are responsible for the primary care and support of an individual with a developmental disability. We are here to support caregivers when they need extra help.
