- Information to caregivers about available services
- Assistance to caregivers in gaining access to the services
- Respite services – providing temporary relief to caregivers by providing professional caregivers in the home
Caregivers are defined as people of any age caring for someone 60 years of age or older who need assistance with two Activities of Daily Living (dressing, bathing, eating, transferring, toileting or walking) or require supervision due to cognitive impairment, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
