How can Respite Services support you and your family?
Respite Services Dufferin is here to make the process of finding respite providers easier for families. We maintain an online database of screened respite providers and can match you with them based on your needs and the skills and availability of the respite provider. Respite providers can support families in the family home and community.
For more information, please visit our our Family FAQ page, download our Family/Individual Information Package or contact us.
