Guidance: Residential Respite Services 

To continue to support people being safe and staying in their current locations, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities has requested approval to temporarily lift the maximum days allowed for Residential Respite services identified in the waiver rules for a person during their waiver span. 

A county board of developmental disabilities may approve an extension during this time, as appropriate for the person, and begin discharge planning again once the state of emergency has concluded. 

If there are any questions about this approval, please contact the DODD Statewide Support Teams for assistance.
