Ages Served: All
Schedule: Determined by Families and Providers

In-Home Respite was designed to provide families with a temporary break from the day-to-day care of their loved one with a developmental disability.
In-Home Respite reimburses families for wages they pay to their respite providers. Respite providers are independent contractors to the families. They are not employees of Community Living, Inc.

Family members are responsible for all hiring, firing, training and supervision of the respite provider. Specific hours, tasks and duties assigned to the respite provider are determined by the family members who direct all aspects of care.

Become a Provider

If you are thinking about becoming an In-Home Respite Provider (which are independent contractors to the families), the first question you must ask yourself is: Do I want to be a public provider or a private provider?

Public Providers:

Public providers agree to put their name and phone number on the In-Home Respite Public Provider List. Only Community Living In-Home Respite families have access to this information. The families will then call individuals on our public list and conduct a phone interview if they are seeking someone to provide respite to their loved one. Public providers can provide respite to as few or as many families as they would like.

Private Providers:

Private providers will work exclusively for certain families they choose. Typically, families have personally reached out to other family members or friends to be a private provider for their loved one. Private providers can either work with only one family in particular or many families. Private provider’s information will not be shared on our public provider list.
