Caring for a person with a disability can be stressful, especially if the caregiver never has a break from those responsibilities. Respite services give those caregivers a helping hand by providing trained staff to step in for a brief period.
Respite services can be scheduled as needed, or you can take advantage of one our planned respite opportunities.
Respite House: The Respite House is located on Woodstock Drive. The house is stocked with a variety of recreational supplies such as books, games, toys, craft materials, and videos. Staff is certified in CPR, first aid, and dispensing medication. We accommodate emergency requests, and the Respite House is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except major holidays.
embARC enrichment weekends: We offer themed weekends with activities and outings based on the theme for that weekend.
Special Activity Nights: Planned activities include craft nights, science projects, movie nights, game nights, community outings and more.
Parents Night Out: We frequently partner with Emmanuel Community Church and County Line Church to provide a Parents Night Out. On these evenings, we provide respite care for individuals with special needs and their siblings while parents and caregivers enjoy a relaxing evening out knowing that the whole family is cared for in a safe, fun environment.
