2021-2022 Overnight Respite Calendar 

We were planning earlier this summer to resume our scheduled overnight respite service in late September 2021, but due to the recent surge with the COVID-19 Delta variant, as well as the emergence of breakthrough cases and the need for booster shots this fall, we have decided to delay the start of our usual scheduled respite sessions at least one month (and then decide month by month). In addition, like the rest of the economy, we are having significant challenges hiring vaccinated direct care workers willing to quarantine and live at our facility.

 

Instead of resuming 4 and 7 night respite sessions in late September 2021 for for up to 22 clients per session, we will hold two 12-night general COVID-extended respite sessions for approximately eight vaccinated clients from 9/29 to 10/11 and then for another eight vaccinated clients from 10/15 to 10/27. These limited slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis with priority given to those not able to attend our modified summer program sessions. Please contact Donna by email at respite@risingtreetops.org or by phone at 732-531-0215 for more information. Please know all staff at Rising Treetops are fully COVID-vaccinated.

 

We will make a decision by September 30th if we are able to resume our typical 4 and 7 night overnight respite sessions and our day services starting November 1, or if we will need to further delay the start of our respite season.
