Respite care is an out of home residential service that allows clients and their families a break from their daily routine and stresses. Respite care is an essential part of the overall support for clients and their caregivers. Respite care may be funded by the Ministry of Health, the Accident Compensation Corporation or privately and may be as short as an overnight stay or for several weeks, allowing clients and families flexibility in how they use respite services. At LFR, our facilities and friendly multidisciplinary team offer respite care for a variety of people with different needs.
