Alternative & Respite Family Program
Alternative families offer long-term support in their homes by sharing their family life and activities. In addition to receiving the care they need, clients who benefit from these accommodations participate in the daily lives of families: they share meals, chores, leisure activities, etc. This program is a means to support and motivate the clients, to teach them how to personally improve their skills and to help them exercise their decision-making rights in their personal lives.
Respite services are provided to the natural or alternative families by accommodating the client at least one weekend per month, for a two-day period.
