What is Respite?
When caregivers hear about respite care, they might just be too busy in their daily lives to take the time to find out more about it. But respite care is nothing complicated — it’s simply relief from caregiving duties when you’re looking after a loved one who requires frequent, monitored care.
Pioneer Center’s Respite Program offers the parents or caregivers of an individual with a developmental disability, cerebral palsy and/or epilepsy a reprieve from caring for their loved one.
- In-Home Care
A voucher system where the caregiver chooses their own respite provider for in-home care who they pay directly. The parent or legal guardian is then reimbursed through Pioneer Center if eligible for funding.
