Our Respite Services provide family-centered support in individual and group settings. Our services take place inside participants’ homes and in outside environments. We help participants develop self-esteem, independence and social skills while enjoying greater participation in community life. Our services also reduce stress and improve home life by providing relief from care-giving for family members.
Respite Services are available to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families within our service area. We offer one-on-one support, in-home support, and support with individual outings as well as organized group activities for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families. Our groups are managed in two different ways. One is designed to foster social interactions, group decision making, and group problem resolution among people with intellectual/developmental disabilities of similar ages and interests. The other is a larger setting that may include siblings and is designed to promote development of social skills and healthy lifestyles through structured creative activities such as art, dance, and music. Both allow parents and caregivers to take some time to themselves while their children receive professional, supervised support. For more information click here.
