The Respite Care Program provides parents and caregivers short-term relief and break time away from their child/adult family member with a developmental disability. Care can take place in the family’s home, the provider’s home, or the community. Families choose their own providers (adults outside their home who have passed background checks). The services are provided to families in the counties of Clay, Crawford, Cumberland, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, and Wayne.
