In-Home Respite Care in Ottawa
Respite Care is temporary, short-term relief for people caring for their family members at home. Qualicare Ottawa caregivers can come to your home to allow the primary caregivers some time away to recharge.
Respite Care can be useful when the primary caregiver is planning to be away on vacation. You may want a caregiver to visit during the day, or have someone live-in with your family member and stay overnight while you are away.
If you are currently employing a caregiver who needs time off regularly, our home Respite Care could be a great solution. We will provide a consistent, steady and reliable caregiver who can fill-in or replace the primary caregiver should the need arise.
The responsibilities of being the primary caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, this is where we can help. Respite care offers a temporary break to the family caregiver – planned or urgent. We can provide scheduled, ongoing relief for home caregivers, to reduce stress and prevent caregiver burnout.
“Just a little note to say that Holly did a WONDERFUL job at my SCI Ontario Peer Connections on Thursday evening. She is THE BEST! She is AMAZING at her job and is FANTASTIC with the clients. Everyone loves her! Thank you again for sending her to us.”

“We called Qualicare Ottawa to get in-home post-op support for my wife. Before their care started, Qualicare discussed our case with the hospital and the surgeon’s office on our behalf to make sure that we have the arrangements as best as possible. At discharge from the hospital, Qualicare’s nurse was present there to get post-op instructions. She and a caregiver attended to my wife at home afterwards. Their intense care was very helpful to my wife’s subsequent recovery. Their attention before and after the surgery had, indeed, brought peace of mind and comfort for us. I would freely recommend Qualicare to my friends and family.”

“The fact that the girls arrived at my home knowing my medical problem, about the recent death of my husband, and generally what was expected of them made it so very easy for both myself and my daughter.”
