Caregiver Support & Respite

Caregiver Support & RespiteCare Support

As a family caregiver, your well-being is as important as the care you provide.

Whether you need a break from your caregiving responsibilities to tackle your to-do list, resources to grow your caregiving skills, time to see friends and family, or a nap to recharge — we can step in. We also offer groups where you can connect with others in the same situation. 

LSS Caregiver Support & Respite services are also designed to support the older adult who receives care so that they can remain active, healthy and living in their own home as long as possible.

Become a Caregiver Support Volunteer

Change lives and make a difference by volunteering as a Caregiver Support Volunteer. Volunteers visit older adults at their homes and in the community for a few hours each week, allowing family caregivers to take a well-deserved break to run errands, rest and recharge.

Caregiver Coaching and Counseling

Our Caregiver Coaching and Counseling helps caregivers develop their caregiving skills, find available resources, and practice self-care to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Caregiver Support Groups

Our Caregiver Support Groups are a safe place for caregivers to discuss their experiences and share resources. Groups also provide caregivers with information, training, tools, and assist caregivers in building a supportive network. 

Classes and Workshops

Our Classes and Workshops are designed to provide essential skills, knowledge, and support for caregivers.

Emergency Care Planning

Our Emergency Care Planning offers caregivers peace of mind, by equipping them with a plan in case a crisis or emergency happens.
