Respite offers individuals a break from their daily routine and family members relief from the continuous care required.
Respite services are available for individuals with developmental disabilities who are over three years of age. Hope Haven offers respite services in two fashions, a respite home and a voucher system. The three-bedroom respite home operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Two beds are available on a reservation basis, with one reserved for emergency situations.
Highly trained and qualified individuals staff Hope Haven’s respite home. Each staff member has completed CPR and First Aid certification as well as other relevant training such as defensive driving and medication training.
The respite voucher system provides reimbursement for respite care expenses incurred by families who pay for respite care outside of Hope Haven’s respite home. It is the family’s responsibility to locate and arrange private care. Payments for this type of care can be made only as a reimbursement. Specific documents must be completed and provided prior to respite care in order to facilitate respite admission requirements and procedures.
