Caregiver Respite

Caring for a loved one? You don’t have to do it alone.

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 offers a secure and supportive environment for older adults living with dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Our volunteer-run hospice care program provides emotional support, companionship, and respite for those caring for a loved one who is dying.
  • We also offer support groups and drop-in sessions for caregivers to discuss common issues and feelings, learn coping strategies, and find out about community resources
