Providing temporary breaks for caregivers through short-term, scheduled respite for children, youth and adults, based out of your home or in a respite support home owned by Community Living Essex County.
Our respite supports offer temporary relief for caregivers by providing quality care to their loved one with an intellectual disability. Community Living Essex County offers both In Home Respite and Out of Home Respite. This is also a great opportunity to increase social circles by making new friends and fostering connections.
Our respite services are offered to caregivers of children and adults with intellectual disabilities residing in Essex County.
Offers respite opportunities for children under 18 from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. We currently have three children’s respite homes spread across the county. Respite is provided all year long except for holiday weekends. Additional respite is offered during March Break and two weeks in the summer months.
Offers respite for adults over the age of 18 from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. We have two Adult Respite homes also spread across the county, providing respite all year long except holiday weekends.
Flexible, extended respite is offered year round to accommodate families when possible.
