About this Program
Respite is a short-term care service provided due to the absence or need for relief of the family member(s) or primary caregiver normally providing the care. The Respite service option is available to people on a waiver that provides licensed staffing support.
People may choose to utilize other waivered services in addition to Respite such as licensed Personal Support. MRCI is a 245D licensed provider of Personal Support/Respite and will function as the employer of record for the workers an individual wishes to hire: providing services such as administrative, payroll and training.
