Out-of-Home Models Out-of-home respite provides an opportunity for the consumer to be outside the home and socialize with other people. This may be a particularly attractive option for adolescents who are preparing to leave the family home for a more independent living arrangement. However, transportation may be required and supplies may need to be moved, and the consumer receiving care may not like the unfamiliar environment or may have difficulty adjusting to the changes. Model 4 : Family Care Homes or Host Family Model: In this model, respite is offered in the provider's home. This could be the home of a staff person from a Page 70 of 215

respite program, a family day care home, a trained volunteer's family home, or a licensed foster home used only for respite stays. Model 5 : Respite Family Day Care or Center-based Model: Some respite programs contract with existing day care centers to provide respite to children with special needs. This is an effective model in rural areas, because it allows children to be in a supervised environment in a facility that may be relatively close to home. Children may be placed in these settings on a short term "drop in" basis, as well. Day care centers may be housed in churches, community centers, and after school programs. Model 6 : Respite in Corporate Foster Home Settings: In some states, foster care regulations and licensing accommodate the development and operation of foster care "homes" which are managed by a non-profit or for-profit corporation. These corporation operated foster homes may provide respite care, either as vacancies occur in the homes, or as the sole purpose for which the "home" exists. Some adolescents adapt especially well to this situation, enjoying a setting which is like semi-independent living. Model 7 : Residential Facilities: Some long-term residential care facilities, particularly those serving persons with developmental disabilities, have a specified number of beds set aside for short-term respite. Model 9 : Hospital-Based: Facility-based respite occurs primarily in hospitals. It provides a safe setting for children with high care needs. It can be a good alternative for a small community that has a hospital with a typically low census or a hospital with low weekend occupancy. Model 10 : Camps: Camp has been a form of respite for many families for many years. Camp can be a positive experience for any child as well as a break for parents/caregivers. CONSUMERS Respite care services are predominantly provided for children. Consumers with more serious conditions and in need of 24-hour supervision in a structured program separate from his/her current living situation in order to stabilize his/her behavior and/or to provide caretakers with a reprieve from their care-taking responsibility.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
