CAREGIVER SUPPORTS

We provide support for the family and caregivers of the elderly as well. Some examples are:

CONTINUING CARE COMPANION

  • Personal ‘one on one’ support is given to residents of care facilities (i.e. manors, lodges, long term care) to provide the little extras in place of families who care, but can’t be present.  Visits can be recreational or otherwise and include such things as visits, cards or games, walks or outings out of the facility.

CAREGIVER RESPITE

  • Assisting with care of loved ones while the Primary Caregiver is taking a desired or necessary break.

RESOURCE COUNSELLING

  • Information is provided to individuals wishing to learn more about public and private support programs available to them in their communities.
