Respite Services

Respite is a caregiver support service that provides temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved in caring for a family member, an elderly parent, or an individual with a disability, an illness, or a debilitating condition.

Respite creates greater opportunities for individuals, family members, homeshare providers, and other supporters and caregivers to live actively and participate in community activities. When used effectively, respite promotes stability and reduces stress within the home.

North Okanagan/Columbia-Shuswap Respite Provider Registry

If you are interested in providing respite in your own home, in the individual’s home, in the community, or on an emergency basis, you will need to complete an application and screening process. Once that has been successfully completed, your name and information will be placed in the Respite Provider Registry and made available to families, homeshare providers, and other caregivers who are seeking respite. You will be considered an independent contractor and you will negotiate the terms and conditions of your service directly with the family, homeshare provider , or other caregiver who is responsible for the individual involved.
