About Caregiver Respite

Being a caregiver can be overwhelming. As someone you love begins to depend more on you, you may find yourself caring for the day-to-day needs of your loved one. It can be very challenging to balance this with your other responsibilities. If it becomes overwhelming, we can provide help with respite care:

  • Our Personal Support Workers can provide your loved one with support, including bathing, grooming and toileting, as well as light housekeeping and laundry, and shopping or meal preparation.
  • Our Adult Day Program (located at 9600 Bathurst Street, Unit 4) provides care to clients who are living with dementia or who are elderly and frail with day programming, giving their caregivers much needed respites.
  • Our volunteer-run hospice visiting program provides emotional support, companionship, and respite for those caring for a loved one who is dying through in-home visits, phone calls, and video chats.
  • We also offer support groups for caregivers to discuss common issues and feelings, learn coping strategies, and find out about community resources.

Eligibility

Our service area for Personal Support & Respite Care runs from Steeles Ave to Bloor-Danforth, and from the 427 to Port Union Rd.
