Sunbeam offers overnight respite to children and adults at the Loft and the Apartment suites on Kingsway Drive. These currently operate from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. We can support individuals with a variety of needs through respite, particularly those who have significant mobility challenges. A variety of activities are planned for each weekend, whether using our recreational facilities at Kingsway Drive, or in different community events and opportunities.
Referrals for children’s respite are received through the Sunbeam Developmental Resource Centre; for children’s respite, a cost-sharing fee structure is applied which includes a government subsidy. For adult respite, the respite service fee applies and can be self-pay and/or eligible for payment via Passport funds.
In addition to our weekend respite program, Sunbeam also offers “summer camp” respite options in July and August.
