Respite for 18+

COVID-19 Measures

Due to pandemic restrictions, we are unable to accept young adults with the following needs at this time: 

  • suctioning
  • high flow oxygen
  • aggressive behaviour(s) towards others that require frequent assistance

Important Information

Along with mandatory health screening at ErinoakKids sites for all staff, clients and visitors, clients are required to have three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in order to participate in the Respite 18+ program. Any parent/caregiver or visitor who does not show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 will be required to have Rapid Antigen Testing on arrival.

Young adults age 18 and over, living with their families who have significant physical and developmental disabilities requiring nursing support may be appropriate for this program. Initial assessments will be conducted prior to confirmation of eligibility.
