What Is Respite Care?

Respite care is a service that provides short-term care and supervision consistent with the health needs of the person to supplement care to provide a safe living environment and/or to support or relieve caregivers for the benefit of the person. Arbor Therapy will be able to assist in setting up respite care at your home.

What is Habilitation?

Habilitation services provide a variety of interventions designed to maximize the functioning of persons with developmental disabilities. Services may include, but are not limited to:

  • Habilitative therapies
  • Special developmental skills
  • Behavior intervention
  • Sensorimotor development

Improving Communication & Adaptive Skills

  • Services are designed to help our clients acquire, retain, and improve the self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully at home and community-based settings.
  • The services include the provision of training in independent living skills or special developmental skills, orientation and mobility training, sensorimotor development, and behavioral management.
  • This service is provided in the home by habilitation providers who work one-to-one with the child or adult doing activities to teach various important skills and improve behavior. Goals are typically in the areas of communication, socialization, gross and fine motor, cognition, and adaptive behavior. Parents play a lead role in habilitation services by developing goals, selecting staff, coordinating services, and participating in the home program.

What Is Attendant Care?

A service that provides a qualified individual to supply needed services for an individual to remain in his/her home and participate in work/community activities.
Attendant care services may include the following:

  • Meal preparation
  • Assistance with eating
  • Bathing
  • Dressing and grooming
  • Toileting
  • Mobility
  • Transferring
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Shopping
  • Attending to certified service animals
  • Supervision, including behavior intervention techniques or other skills as identified on the member’s planning document
  • Maintaining skin integrity, including the provision of first aid

Who Can Receive Attendant Care?

Attendant care services can be approved for individuals of various ages and disabilities that meet DDD’s qualifying criteria after the support coordinator completes a needs assessment.

How Do You Qualify for Attendant Care Services?

Attendant care services are authorized by the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). The number of hours approved is based on DDD's needs assessment for each child or adult. To be eligible for funding, families must be approved through Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS). We have a family support team here at Arbor Therapy that is available to assist families at no cost through the process of applying for ALTCS eligibility and requesting services through DDD.
