A supportive service designed to give temporary care to children and adults with disabilities. For the primary caregiver, it can mean a break in the routine, a day off, or even a vacation free of the daily caregiving responsibilities.
Finding a Provider
ASPIRO recruits, interviews, completes background checks and initally orients all providers. Providers are then matched with families by interests, abilities, experiences, schedules, etc. to make sure matches are the best fit possible.
Then a pre-placement visit is scheduled, facilitated by an ASPIRO manager, bringing a potential provider to meet the family to discuss the needs and expectations. The family can clearly explain their loved one's care needs and expectations.
After the meeting, the family can communicate through ASPIRO their desire to use a particular provider. We believe a family's everyday caregiving can be stressful enough - choosing a respite care provider should not be.

"We have had many Respite Care providers since our daughter was 5 years old. She will be 25 this year. Over the years many of them became a part of our family. I don't believe we could have made it without respite help!
"Having a Respite Care worker who comes to our home makes the evening or daytime occasion much easier because of the amount of care our son requires. Thank you for this opportunity!"
"Respite is a blessing for all parents or caregivers of people with special needs. We just need a break to relax or catch up on other things sometimes. Respite always relieves the daily stress that builds up over time. We could not do without it! I'm sure other parents feel the same way!"
"ASPIRO has come through for us in extreme times of need. My own health has been deteriorating over the past few years and I have needed to be hospitalized several times unexpectedly. ASPIRO has always helped in those times."
