April 5th is National Caregiver Day, which is a day to recognize the significant contributions of the caregivers in our lives, who sacrifice their time and energy to support loved ones. The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association calls them “the invisible health partners in our lives.”

To mark the day, we thought we would share some resources to help support caregivers.

Resources at Hospice of Waterloo Region

At Hospice, we know how difficult the caregiver journey can be and we can provide support and resources to journey with you. From volunteers who can visit the home and provide some much-needed respite for the caregiver, to transportation services for medical appointments, hair salon appointments and day programs.

We also offer a number of complementary therapies for caregivers, including massage, therapeutic touch, reflexology, and reiki for those who would like help managing stress and anxiety, and increase their sense of well-being. These are all available free of charge.
