Caregiver Support and Wellness

In Canada, family caregivers provide about three quarters of all patient care. If you are caring for someone at home, WoodGreen’s services and supports can help you take care of your own health and wellness. We provide respite care, group therapy, counselling and opportunities to connect with other caregivers.

Respite Care Program

Respite is relief or support to caregivers who may need extra help or a short break. Our Personal Support Workers provide temporary or short-term assistance with personal care of a senior or older adult.

Group and Individual Support

WoodGreen delivers a support group called Breathing Space, where caregivers come together to share their experiences and learn from each other. Our Social Workers also provide personalized counselling and support to help you problem-solve, prevent burnout and learn new strategies to take care of your health and improve your well-being.
