Respite is a break from the ongoing demands of providing care for a family member who has a disability or chronic health condition. Wesway offers short-term care which gives family caregivers some time to renew their energy. Respite care is a crucial part of the overall support many people need when caring for a family member at home.
Wesway strives for flexibility in accommodating the strengths, needs and preferences of each family we serve. Care can take place in the family’s own home, the home of a volunteer or in one of our Respite Homes. Respite may also include support for individuals to participate more fully in the life of the community.
