Family support can make a world of difference

Our family support services offer a variety of assistance to ease the pressure, fatigue, confusion and stress. 

 1 in 4 Canadians aged 15 and older (or 7.8 million people) provided care to  someone with a long-term health condition in 2020.  21% of them spend over 20 hours per week on caregiving, and still have full-time jobs and families of their own. Most report they had unmet needs and could have used more home care support, information on how to access government funding and other caregiving issues, and help to navigate the medical care system.

Not having time to care for oneself can have major ramifications on a caregiver’s health. They can become isolated and stressed out, which brings on health problems of their own.

Here are some ways we can help:

  • Home improvement support- living space upkeep -help obtaining house cleaners, landscapers, meal preparations, and others. 
  • Meal planning, grocery lists, and delivery. 
  • Agency communication and appointment setting
  • Administrative work, bill payments, digital communications. 
  • Complete errands.
  • End of life planning and assistance with funeral details. 
Use your time in more meaningful ways. Let us do the things that don’t require you so you can spend better quality time with your loved on
