Q. Do I need to make a reservation for Respite Care?
A. For Respite Care, a client contacts Bonnie Richards (360) 901-0101 for an interview. At that time a release of information is requested for talking with your therapist. It is specifically to find out if the therapist sees respite care suitable and beneficial. Not for any discussion of therapy content.
There is an orientation and application process covering respite program and house rules. Upon completion you are able to contact Shanda Boardman for room availability for your stay. Respite Stays are generally one to three nights with a limit of two weeks. There is a suggested donation.
Please feel free to visit Restoration House before your respite stay so that you will feel more at ease and comfortable. Your therapist is always welcome to come tour as well. Call Shanda for tour appointment.
