Respite care by Comfort Keepers of Guelph, Ontario is there to assist the family caregiver
Being the sole family caregiver for an elderly loved one is a rewarding role, but it’s not without its drawbacks. Most people don’t find out about how stressful and exhausting caring for an elderly parent can be. If you are raising a family of your own and working, these issues can become even more pronounced.
What you might realize is that you are not alone; there are over 44 million adults in Canada caring for a loved one. When your family member depends on you to care for them, you must take care of yourself as well, which is where respite care such as that offered by Comfort Keepers® of Ontario comes in.

- Meet with a support group
- Run errands
Our respite care services are designed to give you, as the family caregiver, an opportunity to get out of the house knowing your elderly loved one is in excellent hands.
