Our Renewed Respite Program offers support from our In-home respite workers who support children, youth and adults with disabilities. Through the use of goal setting with the family and individual, our In-home respite workers assist the individual to reach their potential.
What is respite?
Respite is a short break. At Renewed Family Services Inc. we view it as a time for families who have a loved one with disabilities to rest, spend time with others and take time for yourself while your loved one has fun, develops relationship with others and receives a high-quality respite experience in their own home and/or community. Respite support has proven to maintain caregiver health and well-being.
Some advantages include:
Our Renewed Respite program is available to families all throughout the Greater Toronto Area and is offered in the comfort of your own home as well as in the community as needed.
Our Renewed Respite is available anytime you need on a 24/7 basis. Whether it be a weekend, day, couple hours or a night our In-home respite workers are available to meet your needs.
We have a comprehensive respite team of passionate professionals who have years of direct experience assisting those with disabilities as well as post secondary education in various backgrounds related to the service they provide. Our respite workers focus on your loved one’s goals and develop plans around the goal to provide a quality respite experience.
With our Renewed Respite program, you do not have to worry about finding a worker and going through the hiring process. We complete the process for you and connect a worker to the individual needing support that is most suited to assist them in achieving their goals.
IS THERE FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR RENEWED RESPITE?
There is funding available to assist with covering costs for respite support. If your loved one is 18 and below with a disability, they are eligible for Special Services At Home (SSAH). If your loved one is over 18 years old with a disability they are eligible for Passport Funding.
