Respite Services


Respite is offered on weekends at a home in Kingston to provide parents and other caregivers with occasional relief. Respite is available in some Ongwanada homes throughout the week and may be available with Host Families.

Fees: $3 a day for children and $15 a day for adults (subject to change) for respite in an Ongwanada community residence. The fee for Host Family respite ranges from $24 to $31 a day depending on the level of support required.

If you are looking for services for a child, please contact Ongwanada’s Social Work Department at 613-548-4417 ext 3311.
