TLC Respite is available to clients of the San Diego Regional Center who are deemed appropriate candidates by the San Diego Regional Center for Respite.

Respite is designed to support clients with developmental disabilities such as:  

  • Intellectual Disability
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Autism
  • Epilepsy
  • Other developmental disabilities (Contact San Diego Regional Center for eligibility)

Respite hours will vary according to the nature of the client’s developmental disabilities or needs. TLC will assess the client’s disability/needs and design an appropriate respite curriculum for her or him. Respite can take place regularly or intermittently, as you need it; however, it does need to be planned in advance.
You want to do what's best for those you care about, but it's not always easy. Taking care of someone can be a rewarding experience, but it's also a stressful, demanding, time-consuming task and it’s a big responsibility. This applies in particular if you’re raising a family or juggling a full time job or, all too often, both! It's all worth it to give your loved ones the best care possible.
