Respite Care Program

The Respite Care Program is for parents or primary caregivers of a person of any
age with an intellectual disability.

The Respite Coordinator maintains a registry of qualified caregivers and matches
them with families requiring respite care. Short-term temporary care can be arranged
for a few hours, a day, a weekend, or several consecutive days. Respite may occur
in the family’s home, in the caregiver’s home, in a dedicated facility such as the
Elmwood Respite Home, or may take the form of a community outing with a
companion.

Some funding may be available to subsidize the cost of respite care. Call the
Ministry of Social Services at 306-933.6300 for more information.
Prior approval is required to access funds.
