DeForest Respite House
The respite house provides families supports at our home or theirs!
Families who have disabled or elderly loved ones can utilize services for a few hours up to 13 consecutive overnight stays at a time.
Respite was formed to help maintain a healthy family offering caregivers a break and reducing their stress. Consumers who visit the home spend their time in a relaxing setting occupying their time with many recreational and creative activities.
The home also offers in-home respite services for those who prefer their loved one stay in their own setting.
Respite staff are specially trained to support challenges involving aging and/or medical challenges.
See LifeWays Respite Brochure to find out how to receive respite supports through the Community Mental Health for Hillsdale or Jackson Counties.
