In order to provide respite services to individuals who may have days off from work during the week, Southeast Works has created the Daytime Respite program. The service is available Monday through Friday, provided there are 5 or more participants available to attend on a given day. The activities are decided upon by the group of participants in attendance. This program is also a waiver service so any individuals wishing to participate must live with family members and be enrolled in the HCBS Waiver.
The program typically runs from 9:00am till around 2:00pm but the times may change depending on what the group chooses to do that day.
There is no event fee for this program. Participants are only responsible for the actual cost of each event. When scheduling the event, Southeast Works staff will suggest an appropriate amount of money to bring, depending on the event.
Transportation arrangements will be made on a case by case basis.
