The challenges of caring for an elderly family member are a part of daily life for many people. Caregiving is a demanding job and no one is equipped to go at it alone. Respite care in Ottawa provides short-term relief for family members caring for their loved ones and can help reduce stress, restore energy, and promote a more balanced lifestyle.
Our home care providers are able to assist families in Ottawa to give them the much-needed rest they deserve through respite care. As the primary caregiver, you need an occasional break so that you can re-charge your batteries. Taking a break can ensure that you don’t get rundown and exhausted so that you are able to deal with the challenges of caring for your loved one.
We are sure to carefully assess the needs, abilities interests and preferences of your loved one so that we can provide a caregiver that is the best match possible. Seniors on Site caregivers can visit with your family member at home, in their residence, accompany them to outings, or engage them in our unique dementia care program. Our caregivers can also provide any other needed services while looking after your loved one, such as general home support and personal care, transportation, housekeeping, meal preparation, and much more.
Whether you need to visit a friend, catch up on errands, attend an appointment or a social function or simply take time for yourself, you can relax knowing that your loved one is in safe and caring hands. Turning to respite care before you become overwhelmed is ideal but even just the anticipation of regular relief and time for yourself can be a lifesaver.
Our caregivers are available to provide care for a few hours or for an extended period of time if you need to go out-of-town. We can also continue to provide respite care in Ottawa after a loved one’s passing with specific tasks such as organizing their personal effects and moving belongings.
