Respite/Short Stay

A Well-Deserved Break for Families, Quality Care for Loved Ones: Explore Our Respite Care Services.

Residential Respite Program, a service funded by Fraser Health Authority. This program is designed to offer short-term residential care, aiming to provide caregivers with a well-deserved break. In some instances where safety is a concern, we also welcome individuals who may not necessarily be seeking caregiver relief.

To make use of our funded respite vacancies, approval from the Home Health Manager at the Health Authority is required. 

We’re here to support you and your loved ones during times when a little extra help is needed. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out – we’re here to assist you on this journey.
