UCP Respite Services

Listing Category

Through UCP’s Respite Services, we encourage families to renew their energy and support their overall resiliency in caring for a family member in their home who has a disability. Respite enables families to receive support in connecting and establishing meaningful relationships with qualified care providers. Through these connections, we empower parents (or other family members) to take a break from their daily care responsibilities. Additionally, our services support children and adults with disabilities by helping them build interdependent relationships outside of their own family and increase opportunities for meaningful and active engagement within their community. We offer families a unique and trusted alternative to traditional respite models where the family often must recruit and employ their own care providers. At UCP, we employ qualified staff to provide limited-term care for children and adults with developmental disabilities while honoring each family’s desire to self-direct their services to the highest degree possible.

Description of Services

At UCP, our mission includes a focus on encouraging people with disabilities to feel included in their community. As a result, we offer a multi-faceted respite approach which allows us to meet our main objective of caregiver relief while providing services in a variety of locations. In addition to the family’s home, respite can take place in a variety of locations such as libraries, parks, movie theaters, museums, volunteer settings, etc.
