Nursing and Respite Services

Nursing Support in the Community
Nursing services at home are provided through the Community Care Access Centres (CCACs). Nursing support can look very different depending on the needs of the child. A CCAC coordinator will do an assessment of the child to determine what nursing support the child needs at home.

Respite care is a support service that allows families to have a temporary break from the daily physical and emotional demands of caregiving. Respite may be provided in the child’s home or at a respite program. There are varying levels of support available from different organizations:

Darling Home for Kids

Durham Community Care

Emily’s House

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

Kids Country Club (London)


Safe Haven
