A respite centre is now open for business in Clinton.
The centre offers families of people with disabilities hourly or overnight time off from caring for their loved one so they can rest.
It’s a needed commodity, says Executive Director of Community Living in Central Huron Rosmary Foran.
Foran said the centre’s plan is to have a network of 100 families utilizing the centre as well as volunteering their time to offer respite for other families by the end of next year.
The centre is funded by a 2-year grant by the provincial government, known as the Trillium Grant, which is in it’s second year.
