The goal of Barrantes & Associates Inc.’s Respite services is to provide family members and caregivers true peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being supported and cared for. These services are provided by our Behaviour Support Therapists, who are educated and trained to handle crisis situations, as well as provide meaningful and productive engagement.
We take pride in our comprehensive intake process that allows us to fully understand each client’s individual likes, interests, and needs. By taking the time to get to know each client, we are able to successfully pair each client with an associate that has overlapping interests and skills.
Our associates are committed to providing quality support that is interactive, educational, and fun! Our respite support services include, but are not limited to:
Our respite services are available to individuals within their homes, in the hospital, in residential settings, or in the community, and can be provided anywhere from 2 hours per week to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Urgent Response Support
Barrantes & Associates Inc. has partnered with local agencies to bring Urgent Response Services to families in the Ontario Autism Program (OAP), and other programs, who require short-term intensive respite and behavioural support services.
These services are provided for up to 12 weeks for children and youth, with a focus on stabilization, prevention of crisis and harm reduction. The Barrantes & Associates Inc. associates are highly skilled in managing the high-risk factors that children and youth may be experiencing that have made them eligible for Urgent Response Services such as aggression, suicidal thoughts or behaviour, self-harm, property destruction and flight risk.
