Why Choose UCP?

We offer an alternative employer-based respite service where we take on full responsibility for employment oversight, mitigating a family’s liability for complex employment compliance requirements and regulations.

Key elements of our Respite Service provision include: recruitment, background checks and screening, general training, support and payroll. While we remain the official employer of all respite providers, families are empowered to lead or self-direct their services to the highest degree possible and/or to the extent in which they feel comfortable. This includes decisions on who provides care in their home, scheduling of respite providers and supplemental coaching and training for respite providers.

Our Service Coordinators partner with families every step of the way, checking in periodically to offer individualized support with each family’s unique and ongoing respite needs.
