If your loved one has Medicaid Rehabilitation services waiver, you are eligible for Respite Care waiver dollars. Respite Care allows you the ability to schedule time away from your loved one. You can use this time to take care of your own needs, spend time with other family members or friends, go on vacation, or just find time to yourself. While you take time out for you, you become a better caregiver for your loved one with a disability.

Respite Care,from their perspective,is a lot like summer camp, spirit week, and personal attention all rolled into one. Every participant in Respite has a staff member for them. They get to choose exactly what they’d like to do whether fun or for learning. There are outings every day which allow them to enjoy time with their peers just like them.

Watch this video to learn about how the Vargo Family was able to find respite and its restoration for their family.

There are two neighborhood homes designated for Respite care, one in Porter County and one in Lake County. They run a schedule of activities that appeal to many different interests.In the summer time, the pool is quite the popular place to be. Check out the Respite Calendar of Activities.
