WHAT IS RESPITE CARE?

Respite Care is short-term, temporary, in-home relief from the day-to-day responsibilities of caring for an individual with developmental disabilities in your home. The time off can be used for rest, recreation, shopping, or just spending time with other members of your family: IT’S YOUR TIME…SPEND IT HOW YOU WANT TO.

BENEFITS OF RESPITE CARE

The benefits of respite include qualified workers to care for the person with a developmental disability in your home so that the family’s time away is worry free. Workers also provide companionship, new experiences, and activities for the individual.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR RESPITE CARE?

Any individual of any age is eligible for respite care if s/he resides in Iroquois County and has a developmental disability.

AVAILABILITY OF RESPITE CARE

Respite is available daytime, evenings, and weekends.
