Respite Care

Home / Respite Care

Respite Care is a program that provides temporary care to individuals who are normally cared for at home by family or Home Care.

It offers caregivers an opportunity to rest, tend to their own personal/medical needs, or go on a holiday. Clients are admitted to a long term care facility for a prearranged number of days.

These services help to keep people at home longer, improve quality of life and reduce potential for early placement in long term care.
