What is Respite Care?
Respite services and supports are for rest and renewal of the care-giving family. Respite is a flexible, periodic, short term break from care-giving that supports the caregiver to have opportunity or freedom to do other activities or simply rest. This time provides renewal to maintain and promote resiliency of the care-giving family. Respite creates greater opportunities for all family members to live actively and participate in community activities while allowing caregivers time for themselves.

A Respite Provider is a person who promotes active living for children and adults with developmental disabilities, Autism, or mental health needs in their own home or community, while providing relief for the primary caregiver.

The Respite Coordinator Natalie Steenstra works with families to identify respite options and develop a respite plan. She will help with funding forms, contact agencies on behalf of families and assist them to connect with respite providers. The Respite Coordinator also works with agencies to develop creative respite options for people, to identify the current resources and needs within the system, and to act as respite information resources to agencies supporting families.
