Family respite is available where parents of children with special needs can arrange for support in their own home.
Respite consists of a contract with child and family services (Human Services – Government of Alberta) for a specific number of hours per week, month or year.
Advice and support is available from agency staff. Call the Home Living Supports department for guidance.
Families with children who have special needs often benefit from connecting with other families with similar as situations. SPAN will help you connect to people who have shared your experience and can offer moral support.
