For Parents

At Matthew’s House, we recognize the challenges faced by parents whose children live with special needs and we’re here to help. We provide a safe and loving environment for your child so that you can get the rest you deserve.

Matthew’s House is a warm and inviting home, well-equipped to care for your child’s needs. Our experienced staff are trained in relevant medical and behavioural practices and are sensitive to the needs of each individual family. We also recognize that parents are the experts on their child’s care. During the application process, you’ll work together with staff to create a care plan and a behavioural plan for your child’s stay, ensuring quality of care that is specific to your child. You’ll also stay one night in our beautiful parent’s room, to help your child adjust to a new environment and to help our staff learn your routines and your unique knowledge.
