Respite and Recreation Services
Respite provides opportunities to step away from caregiving responsibilities. The Arc’s respite offerings are designed with flexibility in mind to meet each family’s unique needs, recognizing the vital role of respite in a family’s life. Engaging recreation activities are available through a quarterly calendar that is sure to appeal to your child’s interests.
If your child or loved one is eligible for respite services through PerformCare, there is no fee for participation. A self-pay option is also available.
A wide array of recreation activities are available to support families outside of the school day. Offerings are refreshed regularly to keep pace with the current interests and may include fitness fun, winter break childcare, arts & crafts, cooking and more. Activities can be purchased a la carte through a self-pay option.
Amongst The Arc’s most popular programs, Parent Night Out provides themed drop-off nights where children and teens can participate in arts and crafts, games, and more while mom and dad have some time away from caregiving responsibilities. Partnerships with local high school volunteers provide a wonderful opportunity for inclusion and peer friendships. Also popular, winter break childcare is held in December to provide gap care while school is closed for the holidays.
The Arc can help by answering questions by phone or email or providing topic specific workshops. We can help you navigate state systems and complete cumbersome applications, all the while holding your hand through the process, even meeting in-person when necessary.
