Respite Care Services
We provide the programming and services that people with disabilities need to live life on their own terms. We offer personalized services in both community and in-home settings to support individuals and their families. Available through waivers and other funding sources, our services are designed and delivered by professionals who approach each participant with the respect and compassion they deserve. A person is eligible to receive respite if the primary caregiver is absent or needs relief from his/her caregiver duties. See the following sections for additional program-specific primary caregiver requirements.

In-Home Respite:Respite provided in the person’s home or place of resident.
Out-of-Home Respite:Respite provided outside of outside of the person’s home or place of residence.
