Enrich inc. provides weekend Respite Services for Developmentally Disabled persons. Our services are based in the belief that people need stable, nurturing opportunities for self-expression, caring relationships, and the opportunity to develop and enjoy life.
The Respite home is operating from 4:00 pm Friday through Sunday evening. Residents staying at Respite enter a "family" structure which provides:
1) A safe and nurturing environment
2) Trained staff
3) Supervision of health and medical concerns
4) Age appropriate interactions, activities, and materials
5) Opportunities to express preferences and make decisions.
Our professional staff and the residents are integrated in a "family" environment, which provides stability, nurturing, and predictability. The stay at Respite also provides the person’s family time to relax and “regenerate”. The staff works with the residents, their families, and case managers to assess the resident's needs, develop structure and expectations in areas such as communication, community integration, domestic skills, and leisure.
Our Activities Coordinator researches activities and outings that ensure the client is having interesting and fun opportunities to experience. Each week new plans are created that cater to the needs and interest of our Respite clients. While they are staying at Respite our staff are trained to identity the clients likes and dislikes to use this information for future visits to better serve them.
