Family Resources

There are many reasons a family member needs extra support at home. Elders often require extra help and family members cannot always be there. Following a surgery, you or a loved one may need a bit of extra support during recovery. Needing extra support at key moments in life is a normal part of being a family.

You may be called to help a family member with at meal time or with household tasks like laundry and cleaning. Some times these tasks become a lot more difficult, like caring for a loved one with a disease or disorder.

Being a family caregiver of a senior or someone suffering with a disease like Alzheimer’s can take a toll. The daily stresses can put a lot of strain on a family. This stress is also felt by family members trying to manage care from a distance.

Your Right at Home team has created some guides to help you work through some of the challenges around making care decision for your loved one in Ajax, Pickering, Oshawa, Whitby, Brooklin and Surrounding Communities.
