Mobile Life Skills

Respite services are direct services that are provided to supervise/support individuals on a short-term basis due to the absence or need for relief of those persons normally providing care. Respite is provided based on the needs of the individual and to protect the individual’s health and welfare. Services are provided in the individual’s home or community settings that maintain the individual’s schedule of activities. Individuals can receive two categories of respite services: 24-hour respite and 15-minute respite. 24-hour Respite is provided for periods of more than 16 hours and 15-Minute Respite is provided for periods of 16 hours or less.
