In-Home Respite Service Usage Rates

State law requires DDS and the regional centers to compile data relating to purchase of service authorization, utilization, and expenditure by each regional center across various categories. The categories include age, ethnicity, language, and disability diagnosis. These data show, among other information, the percentage of authorized services that consumers actually used (usage) for each in-home respite service option. We present these interactive dashboards to enable individuals to view statewide data and additional detail regarding the usage of in-home respite services. These dashboards include a map showing the usage of each option at each regional center as well as tables showing the usage by each category identified above. Hovering over each region on the map will display detail about that regional center, and filtering the dashboards will provide additional information about respite service options.
