Weekend Respite Locations

All eligible guests will receive a link to our calendar that will show the dates and corresponding location options we have for the year. If all of our weekend spots have been filled, you will be placed on the waiting list for the next years calendar.

Each of our locations has been carefully selected to offer a variety of options. Whether you stay in a lakeside village, in a beautiful country setting or in the heart of the city, each location will have its own unique feel. We encourage you to look at all of the locations available and choose the one that fits you best. We do have several locations that offer accessible rooms. If this is something you need, please contact our office before booking your weekend. 

When you arrive, you will be welcomed with a bottle of champagne, a welcome box of goodies and a stipend to use for meals or activities on your weekend. As our guest, you will stay in a comfortable queen or king size bedroom with its own private bath.

David’s Refuge offers weekends for caregiving couples and single parents. Both types of weekend provide a combination of opportunities to meet and connect with other caregivers and opportunities to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. 

All caregiving couples and single parents will be paired with one of our host mentors. Host mentors offer an opportunity for an ongoing relationship with a mentor who “gets it”. Your host mentor will give you encouragement and support throughout the year.
