Respite Worker Registry

The Respite Worker Registry is a directory of screened caregivers who provide family respite. The registry is available to anyone in the community who is looking for a respite worker/caregiver.

Respite Worker Registry helps families to find suitable respite workers. The respite worker is employed by the family; the family and worker decide together hours of work, what the worker will do and how much the worker will be paid.

If you are a person living with a developmental disability or family member and would like to access the registry, please complete our Family Registration/ Worker Request Form. Completed forms can be sent to:

Rose McHugh, Manager of Child and Family Services

Community Living Trent Highlands – Lindsay Office
Suite 200 – 205 McLaughlin Road
Lindsay, ON K9V 0K7
Fax: 705-328-0495

You can also drop off the form to one of our administrative offices.
