Respite Care for Adults - Oxford and Norfolk

Respite care offers temporary, substitute living arrangements or special care in the home for adults with disabilities in order to provide a brief period of relief or rest (usually more than twenty-four hours) for the family members, guardians or other people who are their regular caregivers.

See In-Home Nursing and In-Home Personal Support for programs that offer the services of substitute caregivers who provide respite care in the individual's own home.

Short-stay programs are offered by some Long-Term Care Homes and Retirement Homes for adults living in the community with long-term care needs and/or who require care when recovering or stabilizing. Admission to these short-stay programs is through Local Health Integration Networks. A few long-term care homes offer private short-stay respite care. Apply directly to the residential home.
