The Respite Program arranges for dependent individuals, who require 24-hour care, to be admitted to a personal care home in order to provide a planned period of relief to families.
Respite is available for varied lengths of time, with the normal stay being two weeks. Home Care Coordinators can assist families and individuals in accessing the Respite Program. Each respite client pays a standard subsidized daily fee.
