Respite care provides temporary care for a family member with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Respite care provides vital supportive services to help keep families together, giving families and caregivers relief from their daily routine. These services allow family members and caregivers to engage in activities outside the home without worrying about adequate, appropriate care for their loved ones. Respite care can be used in case of emergency, vacations, shopping, routine business, or to simply allow the family some time to visit friends or go out for the evening. Services can be provided for a few hours, a day, a week, or longer, if needed. If desired, families may choose to train their own personal respite provider for inhome respite services. Respite can be provided in the family’s home or in the respite provider’s home. Inhome respite services are available in all ten counties served by Pathways. ELIGIBILITY: Individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities.
