Respite provides support for those with exceptional needs who still live with their families. It provides the child/adult with an opportunity to try new activities and gives their caregivers a break from providing 24-hour care. Respite helps keep families to live together longer.

PCL provides respite for over 50 families annually but there are more on the waitlist who need help!  Many of the children on the waitlist are not able to be supported anywhere else in the region.

Adult Respite

PCL’s Adult Respite home is located on St. Charles street in Breslau. Respite is offered seven days a week.  The Ministry funds our respite program from Fridays at 4 pm to Sundays at 4 pm to support up to eight people.

Children’s Respite

PCL’s Children’s Respite home is located on Malabar Drive in Waterloo.  This home provides respite for up to 4 children on weekends throughout the summer, over the Christmas holidays, and March Break.
