Respite Services

For many of us, caring for a loved one with a disability is an integral part of our daily lives. Yet caregiving can be a demanding, difficult job and no one person or family is equipped to do it alone.

Our Respite Care program is a family support service that provides temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved in caring for a family member who has a disability.

We offer short term breaks that relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in the lives of caregivers and families.

  • Assistance with the activities of daily living, enabling individuals with developmental or functional disabilities to live at home
  • Individual care and supervision to protect safety in the absence of family members or other caregivers
  • Relief to families from the constant and demanding responsibility of providing care
  • Attending to basic needs and other supportive activities that would ordinarily be performed by family members or other caregivers
