Important change in the law for Respite Services
We want to inform you about an important change in the law for respite services. The law currently states that regional centers cannot purchase more than 90 hours per quarter of in-home respite and cannot purchase more than 21 days of out-of-home respite for a family, unless an exemption is granted. Effective January 1, 2018, these limits on the purchase of respite services will no longer apply. Because of this change in the law, the San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center will revise its Purchase of Service Policy for respite services that will be effective January 1, 2018.
As always, as part of the Individual Program Plan process, the planning team makes the decision about respite services. If you have questions or are interested in respite services, please contact your Service Coordinator for more information.
