The Arc of Monroe County Special Sitters is a home-based respite program providing extra help for families caring for a loved one with an intellectual or other developmental disability. Sitters can provide services in the home or can assist the individual needing care with opportunities for recreation in the community.
Special Sitters provides comprehensive training for the sitters, enabling family members to spend time away from the home, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is cared for by a trained sitter. In addition, Special Sitters are available for other family members in need of care or assistance.
Each sitter is thoroughly trained in communications skills, special needs awareness, creative activities, First Aid, and CPR.
