Sometimes caregivers need a little support as well. The ITEC Group encourages maintaining a healthy life balance for clients, their families and their caregivers.

How we help

We offer respite services that are as simple as a few hours in a day, to regular planned occurrences and emergency situations.

Our respite services are designed to be flexible and focused on the needs of both the client and the caregiver. Respite has been shown to help sustain family caregiver health and wellbeing, avoid or delay out-of-home placements, and allow caregivers to recharge while their loved ones are in trusted hands.

Our respite support workers can provide:
