If you are a primary caregiver, you may need a break. Respite care provides temporary care for your loved one. There are a variety of agencies that provide respite services, including:
Adaptabilities – centre-based respite
Postnatal Care – in-home service for all ages
Skills – centre-based respite
Transitions – St. Albert and area
Robin Hood Association – in-home service
Another option for respite care workers would be posting an ad at places such as local churches, the University of Alberta job board, Grant MacEwan (childcare programs), local schools, a local paper, or asking friends and family for a referral.
