Short Term Care
This is a 24-hour a day staffed program designed to give families more options for temporary respite. This program is for people 3 years and older who are deemed eligible for services by the Wood County Board of DD. WLRS hires, trains and supervises all staff. Families rest assured that their family member is well cared for by trained staff.
This program is used as an overnight retreat for preplanned family vacations or accessed due to family emergency needs. Healthy meals incorporating specialized diets, community activities and on call nursing services (appropriate) are provided.
WLRS currently provides respite services at a newly contructed, fully accessible home in Portage.
