GCC offers respite care. This is offered on a short-term basis. Respite is available days, evenings, weekends, and holidays, 24 hours, 7 days a week, and overnight up to 29 days. Although caregivers are required to at least two weeks in advance, emergency respite is available.

What we do

The allotted time for respite will be determined in the member’s service plan. Respite services are offered in a variety of settings to include all aspects of the community, a host home, or in the individual’s home.

GCC offers companionship within respite: Companionship-talking with the member, keeping the member company during community activities such as bowling, going to the library, parks, etc. Running errands with the member. Nothing physical. Currently, GCC does not offer hands-on assistance due to licensure.

Well-trained staff will support members and caregivers, giving them the break, they need.  Providing peace of mind to caregivers is important to us.
