Participants and their families are matched with host families who provide respite by sharing their home. LCDS coordinates the service agreement; however, the families negotiate arrangements that work best for the person, their family and the host family. This service is approved annually with fiscal funding and limited space.

From 8-4, every other Saturday, between September and June, LCDS offers a respite program that focuses on participating in fun events within the community. For a fee, people aged 8+ can attend events, festivals and recreation activities throughout Lambton County. This program was designed to offer a day of respite to families who have little or no existing services with an agency.
