At CSS, our compassionate staff is committed to helping people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) live their lives to the fullest. Our extensive services can provide support for the entire family. Program participants receive services providing an environment in which they can flourish, strive for independence and contribute to community life. Care givers will get knowledgeable answers from our staff and guidance to supportive services that can benefit the whole family.
Our Respite services are provided by a support team that includes a Service Coordinator (case manager) and Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) as well as the individual and their family. Respite allows parents and caregivers to take some time to themselves while the program participant receives professional, supervised support. Respite services can be Individual Respite (one-on-one support) and/or Group Respite.
Individual Respite is one-on-one support that can take place inside participants’ homes and/or in the community. Each participant is matched with a trained CSS DSP who will engage in activities that the support team agrees upon.
Group Respite Services engage individuals in fun group outings including meals out, movies, seasonal activities, cultural events, and field trips to nearby sights. Group Respite fosters social interactions, community integration, group decision making and problem resolution among people with I/DD of similar ages and interests. A monthly schedule of dates and activities is provided upon registration.
