I like the way staff treat us.

Home Sharing/Respite Care:

Home Sharing is full time care provided in your home for a person who requires individual supports.  Remuneration is based on the care needs of the individual and paid on a monthly basis.

Respite Care is when you support someone in your home for a short stay, usually weekends.  Respite care is intended to provide breaks to the primary caregiver from their regular routines of supporting an adult with disabilities.  Respite is paid on a 24 hour basis.

For more detailed descriptions of home sharing, click on the Programs link and see Residential Services.  If you are interested in providing the above services please contact Pauline Fenton at pfenton@teamkscl.ca or at 250-365-2624 ext # 1.
