None of our Social Workers or anyone has brought this up, but at Family Night tonight at the psychiatric hospital during Group, the nurse running the group turned to my husband and I and suggested that we look into Voluntary DCF Services and the psychiatric Tech, as well as another family, agreed. They said that they would provide in-home services such as respite care, behavior mods, etc. Many services that money can't buy and/or that insurance won't pay for, and that it will also pick up the tab for gaps in insurance coverage. Do any of you have any experience with this? Is this something you would recommend? Anytime I hear "DCF" I am very hesitant to want my family and DCF in the same paragraph, let alone the same sentence, but they made it sound like a very positive step in the right direction and it was coming from people that have been working with my son day in and day out and seem to think that we have a long road ahead of us (which, I'd have to agree with them there!).
