Hourly Care

Respite Care Barrie Seniors & Their Families Trust

Caring for an aging loved one can be both trying and rewarding. The demands this type of commitment often include are sometimes strenuous, meaning all family caregivers sometimes need a break. Home Care Assistance of Barrie, ON, is here to help. Our respite caregivers can provide professional, compassionate, and reliable care for your aging loved one right at home, giving you time away to work, socialize, take care of your own needs, or simply relax. With our support, family caregivers are healthier, happier, and better prepared for what lies ahead.

We Carefully Select Our Reliable Respite Caregivers

When family caregivers need a break, finding trusted care is not always easy. The caregiver must be prepared to meet a senior’s needs but also bond with him or her and make the experience positive. Home Care Assistance Barrie understands the importance of finding the right caregiver. Our professional team is carefully selected using strict criteria that includes knowledge, experience, and trustworthiness, and we perform extensive background and reference checks. Once hired, our caregivers are bonded and insured to protect our clients. When caregivers are matched with seniors, we consider personality, interests, and scheduling preferences as well as experience to promote bonding, which puts family members at ease and creates a better home care experience for seniors in our care.

Flexibility Is a Key Component of Respite Care

Effective respite care must offer flexibility to meet the needs of the family. Barrie Home Care Assistance provides the highest level of flexibility with hourly care available early mornings, mid-afternoon, evenings, or overnight. As needs change, the schedule can be easily modified to meet them, and we are there for clients in an emergency with dedicated Care Managers on call 24 hours a day.

This level of flexibility benefits family caregivers in many ways, including:

  • Making it easier to retain financial stability by allowing them to hold down jobs outside the home
  • Providing opportunities to maintain important social ties with friends and family
  • Keeping their minds engaged since they have time to socialize, participate in hobbies, and continue to pursue education
  • Helping them avoid becoming depressed or experiencing caregiver burnout so they can continue to offer effective support for their loved one

Respite care is not a luxury. Rather, it is a necessity for every family caregiver. If you are having difficulty balancing the needs of your loved one with your own need for time away, Home Care Assistance in Barrie can provide the help you need.
