Respite

Clearbrook’s various respite programs offer an array of services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These services are designed to help maintain individuals with developmental disabilities in the individual/family home by providing short-term relief to primary caregivers.


PROGRAMs

VOUCHER RESPITE

The purpose of the Voucher Program is to reimburse families for services that provide short-term relief to the caregiver. This allocation of funds can be used for either direct care support staff, hired and paid by the family, or special recreation programs. The family is reimbursed on a monthly basis through direct deposit.

IN-HOME RESPITE:

The purpose of this program is to provide temporary relief for the primary caregiver. Under this program, the family provides a staff referral and Clearbrook contacts the staff member to start the hiring process, complete required training, and provide payroll services. Once hired, staff can work with the individual for a set amount of hours per year (July 1- June 30).

GROUP RESPITE

This program serves adults (18+) and is held two Saturdays per month at Clearbrook West’s Choice Program located in Crystal Lake, IL. The program runs from 9:00 a.m.–2:30 p.m. and focuses on recreational activities and community outings. The maximum number of participants for the program is 15.
