Respite Care is designed to provide the care that a client may need when their current Caregiver is unavailable
To request this service call: 
What is Respite Care:

Our Personal Support Workers provide assistance to seniors 65+ who may or may not have a disability, who require support from a caregiver, so that the family caregiver may have free time away from or in the home.

Often family members can be tied down and need to have a relief, so they can take the time to be with the rest of their family.

Who can use this service: 

Any senior 55+ who requires assistance throughout their day and receives care from a family member or other caregiver.

The client must reside in the Etobicoke, Brampton, Malton or Woodbridge areas.

How this service works: 

A regular schedule will be arranged, usually with the same Personal Support Worker(s) coming at the agreed day and time each week.  Visits must be a minimum of 2 hours in length.  One-time respite visits may be arranged.

Homemaking and Personal Care services are provided to the client in combination with our Respite Service.

Please contact our office and a Community Care Manager will come to your home to conduct a FREE home assessment.  We develop a plan of care by discussing the individual needs with the client, and Caregivers or family members of their choice.


CANES provides information on low cost services, as well as subsidies that may be available.  Please call to discuss the supports that may be available to you.
