Respite Care in Silver Spring, Maryland
Respite care is provided on a short-term basis due to the absence or need for relief of the parent or caregiver. Respite care may be provided in the child’s home or in the community.
At American Caregivers, Inc. our Respite Care schedules are flexible to the client’s needs while also considering their family members’ preferences.
Although Respite services are not goal oriented or based on a treatment plan, at American Caregivers, Inc., the Respite care provider, (who may also be the child’s primary technician), has been trained to maintain an environment conducive to the child’s developmental progress by providing communication and activities that are engaging and motivating. The Respite technician will use the same methods outlined for the successful implementation of the child’s goals as it applies to his or her responsibilities in the role of respite caregiver.
