As Recreation/Respite Specialist Kathy works with our individuals to develop healthy ways to spend their leisure time. Group activities like outings, sports and crafts are usually encouraged. As Recreational/ Respite Specialist she needs to evaluate the individuals physical and mental abilities and plan activities around those unique abilities. Sometimes this involves meeting with family or other caregivers to determine the most appealing activities for those individuals. Also, our respite services provide temporary relief from the demands of caregiving, which helps reduce overall family stress. This often enables families to better meet the needs of their loved one with a developmental disability. Respite can be very rewarding and we are always looking for more providers. Contact Kathy if interested!
