In Home Respite
What is the Respite Care Program?
Families supporting children with special needs are often in need of relief. This program offers families an opportunity for a break by providing a support worker to work with the child in the home or in the community or to access our Recreation programs.
Who is eligible?
- 0-18 years of age with a long term physical, developmental and/or communication disability.
- Requires assistance to perform physical and/or functional tasks in a manner similar to that of a non-disabled person of the same age.
What can I expect?
Children/youth who are eligible for this program will be prioritized for service based on a variety of considerations and areas of need.
The in-home program has a pool of support workers with a wide range of skills and experience. The Program Supervisor will assist your family in finding the right match for your child.
