Family Respite is available for parents with children of special needs, where they can arrange for support in their home.
Respite consists of a contract with, Child and Family Services (Government of Alberta) for a specific number of hours per week, month or year.
Advice and support is available from S.P.AN. Call the Home Living Supports department for guidance.
Families with children who have special needs often benefit from connecting with other families with similar situations.
