Respite Services

Respite support is available to persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities living with a family member or other caregiver in a residence that is not certified by Office for People with Developmental Disablities. In-home respite is available for people with disabilities of all ages. Trained and knowledgeable staff will provide in-home, one-on-one support, giving the family or caregiver or relief period.

Out of home respite allows the person receiving supports to choose community-based recreational opportunities that also allow for developing socialization and other skills. Out of home respite is available for people of all ages. Examples of recreational activities may include: 

  • Shopping
  • Going to the movies
  • Bowling
  • Exercising
  • Taking an art class
  • Other types of community involvement
Community Supports
  • Budgeting finances
  • Housekeeping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Cooking
  • Health/Wellness
  • Volunteering (The Arc partners with local non-profit organizations to coordinate volunteer opportunities)

Once a person's Community Support plan has been developed, staff provide assistance to help the person acquire and keep each skill. The ultimate goal is to assist people in being independent, contributing and valued members of their communities.

Residential Community Supports

Residential Community Habilitation is available to persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities who reside in an Office for People with Developmental Disabilities certified residence. This skill-building support is similar to Community Habilitation and focuses on many of the same skill areas.
