Caregiving for a family member with a memory-related impairment such as Alzheimer’s or dementia is often a full-time job. Many face, or risk facing, caregiver fatigue and burn-out without options for reliable, affordable and accessible support systems when they need it the most. Our vision is to make this service as accessible as possible to help as many caregivers as we can, so their loved one can age in place, in the comfort and familiarity of home with their family.
This #GivingTuesday, we are raising funds to support the operations of the newest location of our overnight respite program (Caring Centre). Our Caring Centres give caregivers the opportunity to take time for themselves, to rest and recharge for a few days, a weekend or couple of weeks as they take a break from their responsibilities as a caregiver.
Your #GivingTuesday donation will help us continue to offer our Caring Centre at a low-cost and provide reduced rates for those who require it, so caregivers and families have a place to turn to when they need it.
We invite you to help us, help caregivers this #GivingTuesday on November 30, 2021. By making a donation, you’ll help caregivers have a much-needed break with peace-of-mind knowing their family member or loved one is in a safe and secure place and is being well cared for. Every donation also helps us receive up to $5,000 of matching dollars from Home Instead Charities!
