There should be a summary completed whenever a respite resource home is closed. For those closed voluntarily, the narrative should include why the family chose to close/not have their cooperative agreement renewed as well as any concerns or strengths of the family noted by staff. For those closed due a cooperative agreement or qualification issues that led to not renewing the cooperative agreement and any other concerns, the information should be documented clearly. The date of the exit interview and the discussion with the family should be documented in the closing summary also.
The contract unit must be contacted to close a cooperative agreement for respite services; CM-9 and CM-10 prior to June 30, end of fiscal year.
