Weekend Respite Program
The Weekend Respite Program is located at our Smiths Falls Adult Day Program Site; 2 Gould St., Smiths Falls. We offer 3 beds per weekend in a safe and comfortable environment. The program promises to be a very enjoyable experience for the participants while offering respite for caregivers.
Overnight respite will provide a mix of social, cognitive and other related support services. The use of individualized care plans will help participants achieve and maintain their maximum level of functioning. The program will have two qualified staff members on duty at all times to assist with:
- Personal care
- Medication assistance
- Healthy meals and snacks
- Cognitive, social and physical stimulation to maintain health and independence
- Access to gentle exercises as appropriate
Clients attend the Overnight Respite Program from Friday at 4:00pm to Sunday at 2:30pm for a fee of $90.00
This program will provide overnight, safe respite for the caregiver’s peace of mind and your loved one will benefit from therapeutic programming during the day, tailored to meet the needs of each individual. They will be in a secure, small, homelike setting for the weekend.
Referrals to the Weekend Respite Program can be made by families, friends or by health care professionals.
As part of the eligibility process, the client must be affiliated with the Society and have a completed assessment from the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC).
Please note that an intake meeting will be scheduled the Wednesday before the weekend you have booked. This meeting is important to gather all medical & emergency information necessary to provide quality care to the participants of the Weekend Respite Program.
