Respite provides care for developmentally challenged individuals who still live with their families. It provides the individual with a change of scenery in a loving environment and gives the caregivers a short break from the 24-hour care that they give. Respite keeps families living together longer.
We provide respite for over 50 families yearly and many more need our help! Many of the children that are on service resolution are not able to be supported anywhere else in the region.

PCL’s Children’s Respite is located on Malabar Drive in Waterloo. This is home to 2 children on a permanent basis and 4 children for respite. The home was opened in the spring of 2006, with an open house being held in September, 2006.
