Narrative

Bridgewell’s respite program is designed for individuals with developmental and/or psychiatric disabilities who are in need of crisis stabilization or who have arranged for a planned stay. Individuals who arrive as emergency placements receive a myriad of services to help them become stabilized. The services focus on individualized treatment planning and support to enable the person to return to his/her home as quickly as possible. Oftentimes plans are recommended to be continued upon discharge.

The planned respite service is available for families to utilize for respite stays for their family members. This enables caretakers to have a well deserved rest or vacation while knowing that their loved one will be well cared for by our specially trained staff. Around-the-clock, well-trained direct care staff members at respite sites provide support and assistance in many areas including medication management, healthcare coordination, financial management, therapy services, activities of daily living support and social and recreational activities. All referrals to the program come from the Department of Developmental Services.
