Hotel & Travel Respites for Adults with Disabilities
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.
Hotel Respites are New Jersey based programs designed to meet the requirements for DDD’s Self Directed Services (RLC) and Family Support Services (FS) along with traditional self-pay and other third party sponsorship.
Please Note: All Hotel Respite itineraries are subject to change due to weather and needs of the group. A minimum number of participants may be required for each respite to operate. Transportation is no longer provided from home. Check-in can be arranged at Camp Merry Heart in Hackettstown or at the hotel destination.
Travel Respites are non-New Jersey based programs that travel out of state and are not eligible for funding through DDD’s Self Directed Services (RLC) and Family Support Services (FS).
* Where plane travel is required, must have government issued ID for flight, be ambulatory or transfer with minimal assistance, and be able to sit comfortably for 4+ hour flight.
Please Note: All Travel Respites itineraries are subject to change due to weather and needs of the group. A minimum number of participants may be required for each respite to operate. All check-ins will be held at Camp Merry Heart for Travel Respites unless otherwise informed prior to event.
