What is Respite?
Respite is a planned, temporary, short-term break so you can take some time for yourself to:
- Rest, take a breather, or run an errand
- Take a holiday
- Spend time with other family members
- Pursue other interests
- Respond to an emergency situation
Respite can be provided in the home of the primary caregiver, the respite worker, or in the form of community outings.
What is Respite Registry?
The registry is a list of individuals who are interested and available to provide respite care on a privately arranged basis. To be listed on the registry, individuals complete an application, police record check and an informal interview with the Respite Coordinator. There is NO PRESCREENING of respite care providers; Parents must check references before hiring.
Who can use the Respite Registry?
Parent/primary caregiver to individuals who have intellectual disabilities may access the registry. Individuals with many needs are also included from those with challenging, medical and behavioral needs. Individuals can be of any age.
How is the Respite funded?
Financial support is available, for families who qualify, from Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services – Community Living Service Delivery (formerly Community Living Division). A respite benefit is provided to the eligible families; this benefit is based on the needs of the child and the income of the family. Direct contact must be made with Community Living Service Delivery to determine eligibility. Families may be required to pay small portion of the cost for respite care.
