Respite Care Anywhere: Lift The Burden In Burlington, ON

Many people confuse respite care with home care, and it’s easy to see why. After all, our respite care services are available in the home, and we offer all of the same supports you’d expect from a home care provider, including:

  • Basic companionship
  • Assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication management
  • Cleaning and light home maintenance
  • Help with errands, and more

Moreover, like standard home care services, our respite care solutions are completely tailored to the individual, factoring in your loved one’s unique care preferences, support needs, dietary requirements, and budget.

However, unlike conventional home care, respite care services are not limited to the home care setting. On the contrary, our respite care services are available whenever and wherever they’re needed, and we also provide full support with senior transportation. In this way, we make it much easier to coordinate schedules, maintain care continuity, and empower seniors to live life their way.

To date, our clients have used our respite care services to:

  • Support seniors in hospital or health care settings, bolstering their inpatient care outcomes, reducing the risks of delirium due to lack of familiarity, and optimizing hospital transfers/discharges
  • Simplify long-distance travel, setting care recipients up with reliable, COVID-safe transportation, providing family members with a responsive point of contact, and supporting seniors with the ADLs for the duration of their trip
  • Accompany seniors to local events or senior center activities, simplifying transportation logistics, supporting them as needed, and helping them to feel comfortable or break the ice in new social settings
  • Get more out of appointments with health care providers by simplifying transportation, sitting in on consultations to take notes, making sure all questions are asked and answered, and relaying information to family members after appointments
  • Take care of COVID-19 vaccinations, providing full support with booking, schedule reminders, collecting required identification, transportation, post-vaccination symptom relief, and more

These are just a few examples, but they all speak to the same point: that our respite care services are available whenever and wherever you need them, so you can make time for you, without ever having to worry about your loved ones going unsupported.
