Respite service (short term stay) is arranged through Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) Home & Community Care.
If you have questions about access to Respite or to confirm your dates, please contact your Long Term Care Case Worker. If you do not currently have a VIHA Long Term Care Case Manager, you can get more information by phoning the Vancouver Island Health Authority — 250-951-9550.
Used on a regular basis, Respite Care helps prevent caregiver burnout, by relieving some of the caregiver’s workload and stress.
