Merriam Webster defines respite as “an interval of rest or relief.”
Our In-Home Respite program gives both caregivers and those served an opportunity to spend some time apart to recharge their batteries and have some fun and enjoyment apart. Our staff will provide 1:1 time with your family member in the home for an extended period and provide enjoyable companionship exploring the interests of the person.
We work with the DDSO to approve people of all ages for this service and typically, individuals with high medical or behavioral needs are approved more readily. The DDSO will assign a number of hours to your loved one and these may be used any time within the year they were approved. Contact us for more information on how to apply.
