LAP Respite Center was established as a 501(c)(3), private, nonprofit agency providing lifespan respite services for families who care for children or adults with disabilities, chronic illness or age-related conditions.
Respite is the provision of temporary relief for caregivers and families who are caring for those with disabilities, chronic illnesses or the elderly. Planned respite time is a vital part of the continuum of family services intended to reduce family stress, support family stability and minimize the need for out-of-home placements.
The mission of LAP Respite Center is to enhance the quality of life for family members and caregivers of individuals affected by life altering conditions due to disabilities, chronic illness or the risk of abuse or neglect by providing a wide-range of high quality, accessible and affordable life-span services.
Respite services are available to families living within Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties in Mid-Michigan.
