Respite is one of the most critical services required by families with a child with special needs. To respond to this need, ErinoakKids provides a range of options, including day and overnight respite at our Regional Respite Centre in Brampton, where we are able to provide service for both Medically Fragile Technologically Dependent (MFTD) and non-MFTD children and youth with complex physical and development needs.
Respite provides short periods of parenting relief for children who are receiving Enhanced Funding and/or have complex care needs.
Caring and qualified nurses and program assistants care for children while at a respite program. Children participate in activities such as music, swimming, arts and crafts, Snoezelen Room play, and outdoor time.
