In-Home Respite Care Services
In 2010, PEP began to offer In-Home Respite Care Services to allow those with intellectual disability to maintain their independence, participate in a variety of community activities and events, as well as complete basic daily living activities all from the comfort of their own home. These services are usually offered short term (up to 16 hours in a 24 hour period) due to the absence or need for relief of a regular caregiver and are limited to individuals residing in private homes (the individual’s own home or the home of a relative or friend).
In-Home and Community Habilitation
In addition to respite services, the expanded In-Home and Community Habilitation allows for longer term and continual services for those living in single apartments with a roommate or a family living setting. Customized supports are in the general areas of self-care, communication, fine and gross motor skills, mobility, therapeutic activities, personal adjustment, relationship development, socialization, and use of community resources. Habilitation may be provided up to 24 hours a day based on the needs of the individual to protect the individual’s health and welfare. Through the provision of this service individuals learn, maintain, or improve skills through their participation in a variety of everyday life activities.
