Respite

I recognize that being a caregiver for someone else can sometimes feel like unforgiving and unappreciated work.

I believe that self care and self compassion are essential components for caregivers, and therefore offer respite service to provide you with some precious time away from your caregiving responsibilities.

Sometimes you may need someone else to be in charge of the person in your care; to make phone calls, clean and organize, or run some errands. And sometimes you may need time to offer yourself some self love; to catch up on sleep, enjoy life's pleasures, spend time with a loved one or friend, attend an exercise class, or to simply do nothing!

No matter what your reason, the respite service offers you peace of mind so that you can do whatever it is that you need to do.

Supervision Respite

I come directly to you*, and spend time with your loved one in your house, or in the community**.

I take responsibility for the basic needs of the person in your care for the duration of the session, and ensure their safety and enjoyment throughout.

I come directly to you*, and spend time with your loved one in your house, or in the community**.

On top of taking responsibility for the basic needs of the person in your care for the duration of the session, I set goals to be worked on throughout.

A needs assessment completed together with you, determines areas in which I will incorporate natural and informal opportunities to practice skills in various areas including independence, gross and fine motor skills, self awareness, play skills, recreation and leisure, communication, emotional regulation, and more.
