Respite Care

Supporting the caregivers ... because brain injury happens to the whole family

Are you a caregiver? Want a little more time for you?

This program funds support to families who are the primary caregivers to individuals with an acquired brain injury. The changes that follow a brain injury may be drastic and unexpected. Not only does the survivor need help, the whole family may need support coping with the changes.

This program allows caregivers to have some time to themselves to complete errands, to reconnect with family and friends or to participate in activities they enjoy, by funding short-term care for the individual with brain injury. Families can apply for Respite Care at any time during the survivorís lifetime, whether it be during the acute stages immediately following the injury or later in the survivorís lifetime as they continue to require care.

The program funds:

  • Up to four hours of respite care services per month
  • Families not using the monthly allotments can accumulate up to 48 hours per 12 month period.

To be eligible for this program:

  • Families/caregivers must be providing continuous care to an individual with an acquired brain injury
  • Be a member of Brain Injury Association of London and Region
