Personal Support (Caregiver Relief)

In-Home Respite provides much needed caregiver relief if you are caring for a loved one with needs related to aging, physical and/or mental health, which helps to prevent caregiver burnout and illness. Personal Support Workers (PSWs) deliver the service, and are trained to maintain a safe environment, provide personal care, assist with the activities of daily living, provide social interactions, meal preparation, client-centered light housekeeping and more.

A regular schedule can be set up to fit your needs: daytime, evening, and overnight.

Cost: Regular Rate: $19.50 per hour, with a 2.5 hour minimum. Statutory Holiday Rate: $29.25 per hour, with a 2.5 hour minimum. This is a Central East LHIN-subsidized service.
