What is Respite?
Oak Tree Respite services allow adults with differing abilities and their caregivers to take a much-deserved break. Our Respite services are designed to empower our highly trained staff to provide extraordinary care.
It is a natural emotion that caregivers experience when providing care to a loved one with differing abilities.
Where do you turn when you need a break from your caregiving roles?

We are here to help.
Since 1953, UCP Heartland has been providing services to empower families to stay together. Our Respite Program supports adults with differing abilities while giving their caregivers a much-deserved break.
Our Respite Program is unique. Our fully accessible, home-away-from-home is centrally located in Webster Groves. The house features 4 large bedroom suites, a large kitchen, a dining area, 2 large living room spaces, and a beautiful, private, secured backyard.
Adults with differing abilities receive individualized, compassionate, extraordinary care from our highly trained staff. This gives caregivers peace of mind knowing their loved one is being cared for and given opportunities to socialize and engage in activities.
We accommodate respite visits for a few hours to several days, depending on the needs. Caregivers can schedule visits in advance. UCP Heartland can accommodate emergency stays.
Respite is available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Oak Tree is here to help!
