Koinonia’s Respite Care services offer provisional assistance for families and unpaid providers who are otherwise the primary or sole supporters of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Nearly 75% of people with IDD in the United States receive residential supports from family caregivers. Unpaid family caregivers can spend an average of 24 to 41 hours a week providing support to their family member with disabilities (National Alliance for Caregiving & AARP, 2015). As people with disabilities and their families age, it becomes increasingly important that necessary supports are provided to improve the overall quality of life for people with disabilities, as well as the wellness of the entire family unit.
Koinonia’s respite care services offer provisional assistance for families and unpaid providers in need of planned respite and emergency placements for their loved ones. Our home located in Broadview Heights offers 24/7 supervision, healthcare services, and trained and skilled staff with a 24/7 on-call system.
The home is part of our ICF program and offers an accessible, comfortable, and inviting environment which includes a single bedroom and access to a relaxing, quiet backyard.
You can plan a respite stay, which allows caregivers and families a reprieve along with temporary help. The site has compassionate staff that are trained in providing person-centered supports along with medication administration and CPR/first aid.
