CareGivers Services - Crisis Care Program

By: Caregivers  09-12-2011

This program has been in place since January 2010, and we are seeing some very positive outcomes including a reduction in the number of critical incidents in the first 30 days in care.

Our Crisis Care Program provides a safe and comfortable place for children and families in transition 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Staffed with a trained and caring team of people permanently assigned to each home, we provide a welcoming environment for up to 5 children and youth (normally ages 2 and up) for up to 30 days. We know that when a family is in transition, emotions are high and there are a lot of questions. Our supportive staff work with children and families to answer their questions, provide guidance and support, and most of all, help children feel secure and supported. During this time, we work closely with social workers, counsellors, teachers, families, and other people in the circle of care to create the best plan for each child to ensure they do well. By the end of the 30 day period, a formal transition plan is in place that identifies placement options, family support requirements, medical, academic, developmental and social and cultural needs of the child, as well as any requirements for additional specialized assessment.
