About Respite Care
Respite programs provide planned short-term and time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid care givers of children with a developmental delay and adults with an intellectual disability in order to support and maintain the primary care giving relationship. Respite also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care. The term “short break” is used in some countries to describe respite care.
Our Respite Care Services include:
- Specialized medical and rehabilitation therapeutic support
- An individual care plan to help you regain your strength and independence
- Guidance for your family and caregivers to best support you when you return home.
Our multi-disciplinary care team includes doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation assistants, dietitians, social workers and members of the spiritual and religious care community.
They will work with you to make sure you get the services you need, when you need them. Quality health and person-centred care will be provided in your room to allow for privacy, rest and comfort.
