Overnight respite Now Open

Overnight respite care is being offered for one week stays.  We provide clients and families with respite care supported by health care providers and therapeutic recreation staff under the supervision of registered practical nurses. 

The respite stay is focused on a therapeutic recreational experience while providing the nursing and medical support that the child requires for their activities of daily living. Throughout the week, clients will participate in a number of activities including arts and crafts, gym sports and time in the therapeutic playroom (ages 0-6). 

Please indicate your requested dates when you call to register for your respite stay.  You will be required to make arrangements for a COVID19 test prior to admission.
