Kaitlyn's Cottage is a safe and nurturing country cottage getaway where professional staff provides compassionate care for individuals with special needs.
Kaitlyn’s Cottage is a county cottage getaway designed to provide day, evening, and overnight respite for people who have intellectual and physical disabilities. The design of the 5,000 sq. foot cottage is unique in that services are provided in a warm and cozy home environment and although located on the campus of ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital, Kaitlyn’s Cottage is a not-for-profit non-medical respite facility.
Respite care is short-term or temporary care lasting a few hours, days, or longer to provide relief, or respite, to the regular caregiver. The caregiver is typically a parent or other family member. Respite can be for a scheduled event, such as a vacation, school break, or surgery, or an unscheduled event, such as a family emergency or school closing due to inclement weather. Respite can also provide caregivers an opportunity to have time to rest, run errands, enjoy a date night or attend an important event that they otherwise would not be able to attend.
Our mission is to provide respite services to individuals who have intellectual and physical disabilities. We strive to serve all age groups. Kaitlyn’s Cottage celebrates your loved one’s special abilities and we understand everyone is unique. We review each family’s request for services on a case by case basis. For these reasons don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your needs. We will do what we can to accommodate you.
