About the Spruce Brook Family Respite Center
Spruce Brook Family Respite Center is located at 800 Spruce Brook Road, Southbury, Connecticut and it is surrounded by a beautiful country setting directly across from an apple orchard. The entire home has comfortable furniture for guests to relax in by spending time playing games or watching their favorite movie. The house has a lovely floor plan in a Cape Cod style home with hard wood floors throughout, an outdoor deck with a great view, a fire place (inoperable) and traditional furniture. The Spruce Brook home is wheelchair accessible and has three double occupancy bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are located upstairs, so we ask that families let us know if their family members have the ability to use stairs. The bedroom located down stairs is off the living room area and is wheel chair accessible. The large dinning room provides the guests with a family style dining experience. The staff and guests are able to use the bright kitchen to prepare and serve the meals. Two bathrooms are located in the home and one is handicap accessible, and one full bathroom is located upstairs. The Spruce Brook environment is relaxing and designed to make the guests feel at home.


Spruce Brook Center has a nurse available to consult the Respite Staff however the nurse is not on site.Due to the fact that a nurse is not available on site the guests profile at Spruce Brook is reserved for those who have low medical needs.
