Respite services provides temporary relief from the demands of care giving, which can help reduce overall family stress. This allows families to better meet the needs of their loved ones with a developmental disability.

Respite can be provided in the home or out of the home, during the day, evenings or night.

Respite is an “indirect” service providing relief to people who are responsible for the primary care and support of those with a developmental disability. Whenever they have to deal with family illness, emergency or caregiver/staff vacation, respite services ensure their loved one’s needs are met.

Talk to your care manager to learn more about respite services.
