Respite Care

Improving Lives Respite Care

In-Home and Community Respite

We place trained and insured workers to provide respite and community participation supports in your home or out in the community, from four hours or more – so you can get a break, run errands, and live life and your family member can also enjoy enriched experiences.

Improving Lives Respite Care

Out-of-Home Respite

We have occasional beds available for out-home respite in our group homes. For instance, until our beds are full at Improving Lives Greenbank House, they will be available for shorter stays. All available space is fee-for-service on a scheduled or emergency basis.

Companionship Program


For people with High Functioning Autism/Asperger's Disorder and other developmental or intellectual disabilities. Many people lack friends and social opportunities due to poor social skills and social isolation, so to brighten their days (and their families), we provide younger workers to take them out of the house and be companions to them on adventures out in the community.

Advocacy Services


It can be tough to deal with myriad profit and non-profit social service organizations to achieve funding, respite, adult services (DSO), residential and day program supports for your family member. Let us help you plan for success and successfully navigate the system.

Passport Brokerage and Fund Management


For clients who are unable to budget for or manage their Passport funding, our agency can help act as a broker to plan and manage your funding for you and with you. For detail on this program, click here.
