Service Description

Crisis Respite Services provide short-term care and crisis intervention in the home of a person with developmental disabilities receiving care or services.

The person must be on or eligible for a Developmental Disabilities waiver and live at home to qualify for services.

This service enables the person to continue living at home when the person is having a temporary crisis by providing the caregiver with needed support and resources.

Crisis Respite Services include in-home and out-of-home short-term care and crisis intervention through agencies licensed by the Department of Human Services.

Crisis Respite Services offer relief and support:
* For the caregiver, and
* To protect the person from harm during the crisis (or to protect other people living with the person).

Crisis Respite services include:
* Assessment of what lead to the crisis.
* Creation of a plan (with the service planning team) to help end the crisis and to keep the person safe.
* Caregiver consultation and training as needed.
* Recommendations for service changes to prevent or minimize future crisis.
* Creation of a transition plan to help the person return home if they are in out-of-home crisis respite.

Some Adult Foster Care and Child Foster Care homes may be able to provide out-of-home Crisis Respite. The county or waiver worker may be able to help identify foster care homes able to provide out-of-home Crisis Respite.
