Overnight Respite Care Program Now Available Seven Days a Week
September 4, 2018 – Due to funding recently received from the South West Local Health Integration Network, McCormick Dementia Services is now offering overnight respite care seven days a week.
Respite stay options are now being offered for two, three, four or seven nights.
Respite stays include participating in the recreation programming offered by the McCormick Day Program as well as nursing support services.
“We understand that caregivers of someone with dementia appreciate having some time to attend to other tasks or to simply relax and take care of themselves,” says Karen Johnson, director of McCormick Dementia Services. “This extended respite opportunity provides even more options to accommodate a caregiver’s busy schedule as well as the time for an often much-needed break.”
Recreational programs during the day on Saturday and Sunday are delivered by the McCormick Dementia Services recreation team.
The overnight respite program is not limited to McCormick Dementia Services day program clients. It is available to any dementia adult day program participant in the South West LHIN.
Please note that space is limited. To book a time or for more information, please contact us or call 519-439-9336.
