Respite Services

Our Respite Services provide families with brief periods of rest or relief. We offer respite through our scheduled youth group activities and our two respite homes.  Our hope is that these brief periods of respite will enhance the family’s ability to manage with its unique responsibilities.

 

Our two Respite homes offer short-term overnight care for both adults and children through a 24 hour staff supported model. We currently offer overnight respite in Port Perry and Uxbridge. Our home in Port Perry provides two kinds of out-of-home respite. Weekend respite is set aside for children, while adult guests visit the home through the week on a pre-determined six week rotation. Our Uxbridge Respite location offers respite for adults only. This location is unique in that families call quarterly to book respite at times that meet their individual needs. A modest fee is charged to users of our overnight respite service, but an inability to pay will not render a person or family ineligible.

Port Perry Respite – The Port Perry Respite home is located on Old Simcoe Road. The home is a very large three bedroom bungalow, close to the downtown where respite guests can enjoy the many resources available to them. A ramp has been constructed to allow easier access into the home and tracking devices are available in the home to assist with lifting requirements as needed. If in certain instances, a co-ed situation is not preferred we will try to accommodate this need by scheduling appropriate companions.

 

Uxbridge – The Uxbridge Respite home is located on South Balsam Street. This home is a four bedroom bungalow, with a fully fenced yard. Again this home is located close to the downtown area where respite guests can enjoy the many resources available to them. This home provides service to adults only. The home is not completely accessible and is best suited for people who are ambulatory. It should also be noted that this home has a cat as a pet and would therefore not be suitable to people with allergies.
