The Society offers respite care in blocks of two weeks to caregivers requiring respite. The program provides residence at the Complex Care facility in a private room and includes all services provided to Complex Care residents during the client’s stay.
The respite program assists both with relief of caregiver duties and with acclimateizing clients to Complex Care should they require future placement on a permanent basis.
Access to the Respite Care Program is achieved through assessment and referral by Island Health. The client pays a small fee and Island Health subsidises the balance of the cost for respite care.
