Spending time away from a loved one with a disability is not easy, but it is possible to do so safely and with peace of mind. Two community-based homes provide residential respite for people with developmental disabilities and their families. The professional staff at each home are trained in positive behavioral supports and behavior management strategies and are certified in medication administration, CPR, G-tube feedings and insulin administration.
Options for respite services include:
Overnight stays for adults who are waiver eligible for up to five people at any one time, 24-7 in Levittown.
Citizens’ Crisis Respite
Crisis respite services are available for up to six people at any one time, 24-7 at our Seaford location. Citizens’ respite can accommodate people with challenging behaviors and/or medical needs and is handicapped accessible.
Camp Loyaltown is a summer sleep-away camp in upstate New York that offers respite for family members while providing a rewarding opportunity for children and adults. There are several sessions to choose from and scholarships are available based on financial need.
