Respite Care is available for families prior to their eligibility for CAP services from the following agencies. It is also available to those with CAP.
(Wake County) Contact Dayna Murphy at the Tammy Lynn Center regarding the details of their program for families who are not currently receiving CAP services. Hourly, overnight, or extended relief coverage for family members and caregivers from the direct care of individuals of all ages with a developmental disability. They have respite care workers that can be scheduled for services and they also have a reimbursement program. Services are provided on a sliding scale based on income.
The Arc of Orange County provides respite care services to families who have children (all ages, including adult children) with or at risk for developmental disabilities in Orange County.
The Arc of Durham is currently seeking funding to resume providing respite services.
The path to services can feel like a maze. When you discover CAP services, the CAP waiting list can be long and/or frozen due to budgetary reasons. We understand that this often happens and we know that families need a break.
Team Daniel Foundation wants to provide families in North Carolina with an opportunity to receive 75 hours of respite services to a family of a loved one with a developmental disability who receives no services and/or is on the waiting list for services. Because the TDF Respite Fund serves siblings, families already served under the LLC will not be eligible for TDF Respite services.
Here is how you qualify for the 75 Respite hours:
