The Resource Center is proud to offer two types of respite care options for the community, Saturday Morning Respite and Site-Based Respite.  The Resource Center’s Respite programs are designed to give primary caregivers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a time to refresh from providing around the clock care for their loved one.  Let The Resource Center take care of your loved one while you refresh and recharge!

The Resource Center’s Saturday Morning Respite Program is designed to provide youths between the ages of 8 and 18, a unique opportunity to interact with their peers and participate in fun activities in the community.  The Saturday Morning Respite Program is available every Saturday between 10am and 2pm.

The Resource Center’s Site-Based Respite Program is available Monday thru Friday, from 4pm-8pm.  Site-Based Respite is also designed for youths between the ages of 8 and 18.  Activities involve arts and crafts, opportunities to interact with peers, and even a daily snack.

Both of our Respite programs are offered in Northern and Southern Chautauqua County.  For more information about Respite, please contact your Medicaid Service Coordinator or Kevin Anderson at (716) 661-1438.
