Comfort Keepers respite care services provide support and relief to family caregivers in Calgary, AB
Serving as the only caregiver for a loved one can be a gratifying experience, but it can also be a stressful and taxing role, especially when combined with raising children or working a full-time job. Family caregivers, on the other hand, do not have to feel alone. It is estimated that one in every four Canadians aged 15 and up (or 7.8 million people) cared for a family member or acquaintance who had a long-term health condition, a physical or mental handicap, or challenges associated to aging.
