Respite Care (Adult)
Michigan Autism Academy offers respite care for times when the persons’ primary caregiver is not available. We are available when you need help. We can offer you a few hours off once or twice a week or we are available for extended periods of time for vacations. We can come in daily at prearranged times to check on your loved one and to do tasks necessary for them or we can provide 24 hour around the clock care for anyone who needs it.
Any other tasks necessary to meet the needs of the person and family are also available.
Home Help Services
This service is designed to meet the needs of adults living in the community receiving supports funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) of the county in which the person lives. Upon completion of an assessment of in-home skills and abilities, the MDHHS may approve funding for a certain amount of time monthly that a person with a disability would need help with completing in-home related chores and tasks. The areas assessed include bathing, grooming, dressing, transferring, medication, housework, laundry, meal prep, range of motion, toileting, and eating.
Michigan Autism Academy can provide these same types of services on a private pay basis for those individuals who do not qualify for MDHHS funding.
