Respite Care

The Arc Montgomery County can provide respite (short-term relief from caregiving duties) to unpaid, live-in, primary caregivers of:
• Children or adults with functional disabilities (limited activities of daily living which require ongoing support like cancer, MS, traumatic brain injury, advanced diabetes);
• Children or adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities;
• Children with challenging behaviors;
• Frail senior citizens.

Respite care can be provided for a few hours, a day, a weekend, or sometimes longer. However, respite care is not a substitute for ongoing care, school, alternative child care, adult day care or any other funded program. It's just a way to support families who take care of their love ones at home. Families can choose from many respite care venues, including the family home, community and recreational programs, camps and approved respite facilities. Eligible families may receive a subsidy to help offset the cost of care.
