How can we help you care for your loved one?

Frequently asked questions for family caregivers.

Caring for a family member takes time, patience – and a lot of strength.  If you are just beginning this journey, or finding it hard to continue providing the best possible care to your loved one, here are a few common questions that will help you better understand how we can support you.  If you have any other questions, contact us.

Since my mother died, my father isn’t looking after things anymore. Between my dad, my kids and my husband, I am feeling overwhelmed and not sure what to do!

The role of a caregiver is incredibly challenging – but you don’t have to do it alone.  We are here to help.

We can help you determine the kind of help your father needs. He may be eligible for government-supported care and Circle of Care has a full range of home care services available.  As well, one of our Social Workers can provide you with the support you need to carry out your role as a caregiver.

I don’t think my mother is eating properly. Can you help?

We have options for you. Our Kosher Meals on Wheels program offers a variety of nutritious, balanced entrées, soups, and snacks that your mother can easily heat up.  Menus for special diets are also available.  Another option is to have a Personal Support Worker come to your mother’s home and prepare her meals. You can arrange regularly scheduled visits, as frequently as you like.

My husband doesn’t seem to be looking after his personal care very well and is not bathing regularly. What kind of help is available?

We have Personal Support Workers who can help your husband with his personal care needs. One of our nurses can visit to assess your husband’s needs and discuss various options with you both.

My mother’s memory seems to be getting worse. I noticed her wearing a winter coat on a warm spring day, and she can’t seem to remember her appointments. I’m worried.

When forgetfulness begins to interfere with your mother’s normal activities, there may be several different underlying causes. We would suggest that you consult your mother’s physician who may arrange for some further assessment.
