Respite

Dryden and Surrounding Area

The Respite program provides family relief for parents of children and youth who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. To be eligible for services, the individual must be residing in the family home. Services are also available for families of children and youth up to the age of eighteen years where the individual has an on-going medical condition.

Out of Home Respite

This program provides funding directly to parents of children with multiple special needs (physical and/or developmental) to assist them in hiring individuals to provide respite services. This service is available to families with children under the age of eighteen who reside in the family home. The service is provided to families residing in the Kenora and Rainy River Districts, who without planned respite support, may be at risk of breakdown and/or the child would require a long-term residential placement.
