“respiteservices.com working together to facilitate respite options that empower individuals with differing abilities and their families to lead active and rewarding lives.”
1. To develop a comprehensive respite system in London/Middlesex.
2. To develop and maintain a coherent access process for families of children and adults requiring respite options.

4. To work closely with service providers to advocate for appropriate service options to meet the needs identified.
Respite care is a family support service that provides temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved in caring for a family member who has a disability. Respite creates greater opportunities for all family members to live actively and participate in community activities and allows parents/guardians time for themselves.
