Are you in need of personal support? Or, is there someone in your home you are a caregiver for? There are lots of joys and benefits of being a caregiver, but sometimes you need a much needed break. Give the Seniors Services a call at 613-279-3151 and we can speak with you about our Respite and Day Programs. A fee is charged for these services. Subsidies may be available.
Caring for a family member or friends can be stressful and overwhelming. Our trained, screened, Personal Support Workers can care for your loved one while you have a break. Respite Services can be scheduled weekly, or on an “as-needed” basis.
Day Programs consist of a day of social interaction and activities in a group setting. They meet weekly in three locations: Sharbot Lake (Tuesday); Plevna (Wednesday); and Parham (Thursday). We have received rave reviews! Transportation can be arranged. Eligibility is determined by Home and Community Care Support Services.
