TeamCare’s self-directed respite program allows the parent/guardian of children with special needs to recruit their respite worker of choice and direct their child’s respite care needs. The program provides financial reimbursement to families for the expense they incur in paying someone to provide respite care for their child. The parent/guardian is responsible to identify their own eligible respite worker and provide specific training and supervision as they feel necessary.
With TeamCare’s self-directed program, you can hire a worker who you and your child are comfortable with and you can schedule respite care to meet your specific needs.
Parents & respite providers work together to create a customized plan for each child.
