In-home respite care
As heroic and gratifying as being a family caregiver may seem, it’s also an extremely demanding job. Anxious and exhausted, those who provide care for a loved one—often in addition to a holding a full-time job and being a parent—can quickly find themselves completely drained. However, the tradition of family caregivers is deeply entrenched in Quebec and throughout Canada. It’s estimated that more than 8.1 million people (especially Baby Boomers) are taking care of a family member in need.
Because your role as a family caregiver is essential, for the sake of your own health, it’s important for you to take a break every now and then. Even though you love those who are dear to you and want to be strong for them, taking a break to recover your strength will allow you to be a better caregiver. Our respite care service will do exactly that: offer assistance with the home care of seniors and other adults in need. As a result, family caregivers can get some rest, attend to business and take care of their own needs, including the following:
- Running errands
- Going shopping
- Attending support group meetings
- Seeing a doctor or dentist
- Taking some time for themselves, as they see fit
