Resources for Families
Ageing isn't easy. Not for the person who is feeling the effects of the years. Not for their family members.
As a person begins to age, family members are often called on to help with everyday things that their loved one now finds challenging – meal preparation, laundry and housekeeping. Eventually, many people find themselves assisting their loved ones in ways they never expected – like hygiene and grooming – or for diseases and disorders they could never have anticipated.
Right at Home Canada understands that caregiving for a loved one can take its toll on caregivers and it can change family dynamics. We also understand that many people find themselves hundreds or thousands of miles away from a loved one who needs care, which can become highly stressful.
These guides are meant to be a starting point to help you through making care decisions. If you have any questions at all please reach out to one of our Care Planners by calling 1 (855) 983-4664. We are always here to answer any questions.
