Take the Break You Need When Caring for Your High Needs Child
Kids are a lot of work. All parents need breaks to stay healthy and sane. That is even more true when you are parenting a kid with high needs.
Can you imagine the relief of just three hours to yourself?
If you can’t, then allow Crossroads Kinnections staff to give you a chance to take a breath. We have cared for over 5000 individuals in our 20 years of operation. We can help you too.
Review our services below and call us today to set up a meeting.
Kinnections can provide the skilled staff to come to you. We can work with you in your home to help manage behaviours and daily routines with your child. If it works better for you, we could also provide a community outing staff person to take your child out of the house and give them a chance to be a kid.
Summer comes around and flips your whole schedule around. Kinnections offers extra care supports and clubs to provide you a break from summer break.
Host Home – Overnight Respite
Sometimes you need a longer break than just a couple of hours. Maybe Grandma doesn’t have the energy to take care of your high needs child for a whole weekend. That is where our host homes come in. A trained host family will partner with your family to provide that extra break – whether it be one weekend a month or just one night.
Host Home – Extended Placement
Sometimes even when you have done everything you can think of, having a high needs kid remain in the family home is too much to manage. Maybe you are so exhausted you are ill, or perhaps there are safety concerns for your other children. Whatever the reason, our host homes also act as out of home placements. We can provide a safe home to support your child while keeping them connected with you.
