Respite Care

Respite Care Program

The Collaborative has developed a statewide Respite Care Program that offers therapeutic relief and time-limited breaks to families and other caregivers of CareSource and Aetna OhioRISE Members. Our network of respite care practitioners are available to assist members with normal activities of daily life in order to meet the needs of the primary caregiver, as well as the child. The Program goal is to improve child and family outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. A pilot of the Program formally began on February 1, 2021.
