We Provide Care In Other Ways, Too
Some families occasionally need a break from caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. In such cases, we have respite care providers, similar to foster parents, who care for our clients for anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. We provide respite care to about 20 people a year, sometimes on an emergency basis when a family has a crisis.
Some people with developmental disabilities live by themselves and just need occasional help to remain independent. We send our staff to their residences for 15 to 40 hours a week to assist with duties such as cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, banking and medical appointments. We provide this assistance to a half-dozen clients.
