Community Based Respite

Respite Services

Respite servicesĀ are services provided on a short-term basis to a HomeChoice demonstration program participant who is not enrolled on a HCBS waiver, and who is unable to care for himself or herself, and because of the absence of, or the temporary or periodic relief for, the primary caregiver.

Respite services include all of the necessary care that the primary caregiver would normally provide during that period. Respite services may be provided in an in-home, out-of-home or day camp setting in accordance with the participant’s non-waiver HOME choice demonstration program service plan.
