Hotel and Travel Respites

Hotel & Travel Respites for Adults with Disabilities

Lake George

Our Hotel and Travel Respites (HTR) are designed to accommodate adults of varying abilities who require minimal to mild support and assistance with community based activities.

All HTR programs are hotel based and each traveler receives their own bed for maximum comfort and relaxation.

Safety and comfort are of the utmost importance to us. To ensure the integrity of these areas, we maintain a 1:3 staff to consumer ratio at all times and provide relevant and current trainings.
