respiteservices.com consists of agencies funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. We are collaborating to develop a more dynamic respite network for both children and adults in the Cochrane Temiskaming District.
Respite is short term, temporary care provided so that you can take a break from the daily routine of care giving for someone with a developmental disability, autism and/or physical disability. Respite can vary from a few short hours, to a week or may even involve overnight care. Respite may be provided in your home or in a community location.
• Why might I need respite?
Taking care of yourself on a regular planned basis is important when you are caring for someone dependent on you. Respite may also provide a chance for you to spend more time with other family members or to get more involved in the community. You decide what you need! Respite is often referred to as a gift of time.
•Who provides respite care?
You may contract or employ someone to provide respite care. This website provides a Respite Provider Registry. If you are interested in contacting a Respite Provider, please contact a Respite Network Agency.
Funding may also be available in an emergency situation where additional respite is required.
For more information, please contact any local Respite Network Agency
