Respite care is a service that is provided to individuals unable to care for themselves that are furnished
on a short-term basis because of the absence or need for relief of those persons who normally provide
care for the individual. We offer RN and general respite care services within a variety of settings such as
the individual’s home or place of residence, in the respite caregiver’s home, in a camp setting, in a
DDRS-approved day habilitation facility, or in a non-private residential setting (such as a respite home).
Respite may be used intermittently to cover those hours normally covered by an unpaid caregiver.
Respite care services are available under the FSW and CIH waiver.
