Respite & Community Living Services
United Disability Services offers a wide range of quality respite and community living options for people with disabilities and their caregivers:
- Respite Care
Our extensive Time For Me Respite Care services are available to families caring for someone with a developmental disability; someone who is elderly with a health impairment, including Alzheimer’s; a child with an emotional disability; or a child with a chronic or terminal illness receiving services from the Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center at Akron Children’s Hospital. Both in- and out-of-home respite is available to meet this ever-increasing need.
- Community Living Services
UDS Community Living Services offer more choices than ever before to help people with disabilities maintain their independence by living in the community in a home or apartment of their choice. Residential Services, Supported Living Services, In-Home Support Services and foster care are available to those who qualify. A new Independent Living Program is also available to individuals over the age of 55 who are experiencing vision loss to help them maintain their independence in the community.
- Epilepsy Program
The Epilepsy Program provides individual counseling, support groups and opportunities to socialize to people being served by one of the local county boards of developmental disabilities. The program also provides general information to the public through speakers and presentations to schools, employers, community groups and other organizations interested in learning more about this often misunderstood disorder. For more information or to schedule a speaker, contact us online or call the Epilepsy Program at 330.762.9755.
- Family Voices of Ohio
UDS is managing a grant from the State of Ohio through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide the Family Voices of Ohio program. A health information specialist is available to assist families in 17 counties* across Northeast Ohio caring for children with special healthcare needs by providing information about public and private healthcare, special education, transition to adult services and community resources. Peer support is also available to families on a one to one basis or in a support group setting. A copy of the Parent to Parent Newsletter is available here.
