COVID-19 update
There may be times when our respite activities and events may need to be held virtually for a short period of time to keep you and your loved ones safe.

When this happens, we’ll support you or your loved one to access an electronic device (at no cost) to remain connected with our virtual program and community.

This includes virtual cooking classes, exercise classes and more.

In-home respite

Our flexible in-home respite program delivers care for people who are socially isolated at home or within the community, to provide them with meaningful companionship and social support.

Following a comprehensive assessment, you or your loved one will be matched with some of our friendly and experienced staff members, based on your personal interests, hobbies and wellbeing goals.

Our staff will visit you or your loved one at home and provide care services, including:

  • companionship and meaningful activities
  • access to social outings, shopping and medical appointments
  • assistance with approved household duties
  • assistance with some personal care tasks.
