Ohio’s Statewide Respite Program: It Takes A Village-Partnering, Preventing and Prospering
The Collaborative, in partnership with CareSource, has developed Ohio’s statewide Respite Care Program, which offers therapeutic relief & time-limited breaks to families as well as to other caregivers who are CareSource Members. This network of respite care practitioners is available to assist CareSource Members with normal activities of daily life to meet the needs of the primary caregiver, as well as the child. The Respite Program’s goal is to improve outcomes for child & family and reduce health care costs.
This session will explore the continued need for respite to be a temporary program, including capturing data especially in support of improvements. Specific areas of data collection around a comprehensive understanding of how much time, energy, and costs are needed, especially in support of an infrastructure with intake and referral management. In addition, there will be discussions around incorporating technology to further build provider capacity, while supporting current staff, managing staff shortages, as well as increasing much needed foster homes. Lastly, the importance of developing a more effective and efficient referral process-providing pertinent information in support of timely decision making for successful placements.
