Respite providers at PlayDate Behavioral Interventions are responsible for overseeing in-home and center based respite sessions. Responsibilities therein may include engaging in play, prompting social interactions, feeding clients based on dietary restrictions, and following in-home daily routines (bathing, meals, putting to bed, etc.). Respite staff are responsible for being aware of their own schedules and making it to scheduled appointments punctually. If there are any issues with scheduling, transportation to a home, or best practices in the interest of clients, respite workers are to report to the respite coordinator/scheduler in person or via the respite line. Respite workers do not schedule appointments; all scheduling is done by the respite coordinator/scheduler. Any cancellations or appointments to be scheduled need to be communicated to the respite coordinator/scheduler. The safety and well-being of PlayDate’s clients and their families is the responsibility of the respite worker during any respite session. While ABA principles may be employed during a respite session, the sessions should not include programs, as the primary focus of respite is to provide a safe, appropriate, play-oriented environment for our clients. Finally, respite sessions should be client-focused sessions wherein all employees of PlayDate provide the highest quality service possible.
