Free Standing Respite

Free Standing Respite services are designed to provide temporary relief for families or other caregivers of individuals with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities. Respite provides a fun and activity-filled weekend for the guests that attend.

The Respite Home offers families a supervised setting for their loved ones to spend the weekend while giving the primary caregiver a "respite"or break from the daily responsibilities. Open every weekend, the Respite Home offers a chance for individuals to spend time with people of similar age and interests, while participating in fun, meaningful recreational and social activities. 

The Respite staff assists in the smooth operation of the home, ensuring the home is neat and clean both inside and out, that individuals' needs are being met, and a weekend of fun and entertaining activities are provided while guaranteeing each individual's safety and well-being.
