Respite

Penn-Mar’s respite home is located in Jefferson, PA. Planned and emergency respite for qualified residents of York and Adams counties can be coordinated through York/Adams MH/IDD Supports Coordination. The goal of the respite program is to provide a homelike residence where individuals and their families can be assured that quality care is provided during short-term stays. We will ensure active participation in typical daily activities by providing opportunities for community outings, transportation to and from adult day and vocational programs, and assistance in basic self-care. Individuals still in school will continue to attend as scheduled.
