RESPITE

Imagine parents who have not left their house together for decades, ever since their child was born with a disability or a disease. Some families cope with the challenges of an adult with special needs and have also found relief through our program.  Our respite program began offering four to eight-hour care breaks to families in 1995.  More than 1,316 care hours were provided in 2016.   We would be happy to discuss our respite program for your family.

 

Respite is...


  • A support service for families
  • In-home based care for a child or adult with a disability
  • Provided by Trained Nurse Aids contracted through Allegiance Health
  • For Jackson County Residents
  • 4 to 8 hour shifts 3-4 times per month up to 16 hours per month (exceptions for emergencies considered)
  • Hours of service; 7 days a week between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m.
