Recreational Respite serves children, youth and adults with disabilities and mental health, across Canada!
We are committed to paramount service for all of those we serve, their families and their communities across the nation. Our service goals are to assist in identifying the barriers to participation that may exist for children, youth and adults with disabilities or mental health, and promote inclusion and active citizenship.
Recreational Respite works with individuals who face barriers to participation in their community due to disability, mental health, injury, isolation, chronic illness or disorder. Our skills include being able to identify ways to remove the barriers that exist through various approaches in 1:1 or group settings. We strive for positive change and to reach desired outcomes through person centred recreation. We include the needs, abilities, strengths and interests of every individual we support and every approach we take through recreation. This ensures that targeted goals for mental health, emotional health and physical wellness and life skills are achieved.

The intention of Therapeutic Recreation (or Recreation Therapy) is that fun and engaging tasks increase both participation, sense of self, role, worth, purpose and success – thus supporting our customers to maximize their potential. Our service can be provided in any environment in which our customers reside including: home residence, supportive living, group home, retirement homes or long term care. Since individualized programming is built upon the needs of each customer, the goals and objectives of each program will vary as will program design, but will always factor in recreational interests, inclusion and engagement.
