Recreational Respite has built an entire team of Recreation Therapists on the premise that FUN changes behaviour! The work we do in both areas of 1:1 support (in the home or community setting) and group based recreation programs promote engaging activity in order to support individuals to achieve individual goals and reach desired outcomes that include: social skills, re-integration into family, school, work or community, participation, life skills, independence and identifying sense of role and purpose.
Programming is customized based upon the individual needs, interests, abilities and strengths of the individual. Therapeutic Recreation focuses on inclusion, emphasizes participation, is person centered and goal driven.
