Caring for and finding appropriate supports for your loved one is in many ways a full time job. At times it is emotional, stressful, and even lonely. But, have you ever taken the time to find support for yourself. As a critical component in community supports for the elderly, you are not invisible.
First and foremost you need to read the Caregiver Community Services Guide produced by the Erie St. Clair Community Care Access Centre. There is no need for us to recreate the wheel when this partner agency of the Seniors Advisory Committee produced such a wonderful and comprehensive document.

With the growing number of seniors being cared for by family members, Respite Care is a valuable service.
When looking after a love one, respite care provides a period of relief that is much needed for the well-being of the caregiver(s) and provides excellent social opportunities for clients.
Chatham Kent offers a number of services providing respite care (for short term stays) and senior adult day programs.
