What is respite care?

Respite care is a family support service that provides temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved in caring for a family member with a developmental and/or physical disability. Respite creates greater opportunities for all family members to live actively and participate in community activities while allowing caregivers time for themselves.


Please note that for the purposes of this website any reference to “CHAP Support Providers” refers to a Respite Service Provider.

The CHAP Program facilitates the connection of individuals with disabilities and CHAP Support Providers through a Family Registry and Respite Service Provider Database. We also provide information on community respite services and upcoming workshops/events. Please complete a Family Registration Form to gain access to CHAP Support Provider Profiles.  If you are interested in becoming a CHAP Support Provider please complete a profile and upload your resume and a copy of your police check.
