Respite Care

Temporary care that provides relief for permanent care givers. It can be offered for a few hours, a weekend or overnight. The Arc screens and trains respite providers so families can utilize this program knowing their family member is properly cared for.

Self-Hired Respite allows families with children to use the care giver of their choice to provide respite care.  Families are reimbursed as the Department of Children and Families contract allows.
