Being a parent of a child with diverse abilities is a challenge. Self-care is an important factor in helping ensure parents are at their best to support their child/youth.

Building Bridges Community Support has a list of individuals interested in providing respite support to families. We have pre-screened these individuals to ensure they have up-to-date criminal record checks, first aid, driver’s license and driver’s abstract.  Families are still responsible for interviewing and hiring the individual recommended by Building Bridges.

Respite funding may be available through Children and Youth with Special Needs or the At Home Program. Contact your CYSN worker for further information.

For more information, please contact Astrid Koenig at 250-634-3020.
