The families of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are often under a great deal of stress – physical, emotional and economic. Sometimes they want a break in order to do errands, attend a special event, have time for themselves or need respite services for an overnight or a weekend trip. The Arc of Howard County’s Respite Care house provides a safe, fun and comfortable place for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities while their families are away.
The Respite Care house provides care for as little as a couple of hours or longer periods of time such as overnights, weekends and vacations. Respite care can also be provided during school breaks and for special requests.
