Long Term Care

Respite Care

Our respite care services give regular caregivers a break from their daily responsibilities.

What is respite care?

Respite care provides time off for people who continually care for a relative or friend who is ill, injured or frail.

Purpose of respite care

Respite care offers scheduled, temporary, substitute care to the person being cared for, giving caregivers a break from their daily responsibilities.

Respite care is appropriate for anyone who continuously cares for a person who needs help managing day-to-day activities or needs to be supervised due to Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia.

At the Region of Peel, respite care is offered at the Davis Centre in Caledon. Respite care clients are fully integrated into the life of the home. They receive personal and medical care and participate in the centre’s activities and programs.

Respite services:

  • Give regular caregivers a scheduled break to recharge or do things for themselves.
  • Provides a person who is being cared for with a place to stay when his or her regular caregiver is unable to provide care for a short period of time.
