At home respite
Between 4 to 8 hours a week, caregivers residing in the Haut-St-Laurent territory, are entitled to these services. Homecare-providers, trained by the organization, step-in to take over responsibility from the caregiver at home.
This service allows the family to carry out various daily activities, such as running errands, going out with friends or as a couple, going to medical appointments, etc. The caregiver can also decide to stay at home while the homecare-provider oversees the loved one’s care.
Please contact one of our respite supervisors if you need more information.
“My father’s homecare-provider is the perfect person: calm, dedicated, smiling and reassuring. My father is always happy to see her. I feel completely at ease. Although I did not have the time to participate in your workshops for caregivers, I appreciated their availability when needed.
I greatly appreciated, during the first wave, despite the cessation of activities, that you took the time to contact me and my father. Also, the card I received for caregiver’s was superb and an encouragement for the future. Knowing that you are by our side is reassuring and supportive. Thank you for your wonderful and essential work! You are an integral part of the guardian angels of the system. ”
