Respite for Family Caregivers
If you take care of a loved one who has a serious illness at home and wish to continue to do so but feel the need to grant yourself some respite, then the Bagotville MFRC’s "Give It a Rest Program" can certainly help you!
As a visiting homemaker, our Rescue Nanny will go to your home free of charge on a three-hour basis per visit to take over and grant you a break.
You can do what you please with this respite time while our Rescue Nanny ensures the safety and basic needs of your loved one. If specific care is required, we’ll accompany you in the search for a specialized resource with a partner organization.
For any question or request related to the "Give It a Rest Program", please call the MFRC by dialing 418 677-7468. You will be immediately directed to a staff member who'll know how to accompany you according to your needs.
