In-Home Respite Care

11501, 11601

The purpose of respite services is to provide the family caregiver with temporary, short term relief from the constant care needs of their family member, so that the individual with a developmental disability may continue to reside in the family home.  In-home respite services are provided in the family home either by an agency staff or by a person selected by the family.   Services need to be agreed to in advance and included in the person's Individualized Program Plan (IPP).
