What is respite care?

Respite care is the transfer of caretaking responsibilities, usually from a primary caregiver to a professional caregiver. At Grand River Nursing, we understand this can be a challenging step to take. Rest assured, caregiving is not only our profession but our honour.

Because respite care simply means temporary care, it can encompass a wide variety of services and varies from family to family. You may only need us while you go on vacation. Perhaps you need help every week on a specific day. Each family we serve receives a thorough evaluation and a customized care plan to meet their unique needs.

Grand River Nursing is dedicated to helping people receive support in the comfort of their own homes. We encourage independence, engage your loved one in meaningful ways, and commit to compassion and dignity for everyone we serve. Because we meet our patients where they are, we also provide respite in hospitals.
