Planned Respite is a short-term intervention for people who are experiencing an increase of symptoms that cannot be managed at home without increased supports. Voluntary and temporary, Planned Respite is provided by trained staff at either home-like settings within the community or at the person’s place of residence.
The stay includes supports intended to avoid unnecessary hospitalization and regain stability in the community. Planned Respite Services can also be used to provide primary caregivers (family, significant other or legal guardian) relief from care responsibilities. For more information
