Client Stories

When Margit’s partner, Tom, was diagnosed with dementia in 2011, the 92-year-old became his 24-hour caregiver, a road she’d travelled previously during her first husband’s illness before he passed away in 2003. But as Tom’s dementia progressed and he started to wander, the programs she’d previously accessed for caregiver relief were no longer able to support Tom’s needs.

“It was a blessing when I was connected with Caregiver Recharge service,” says Margit, an active senior who still drives and is adjusting to life on her own after Tom recently moved into a retirement home. “My daughter lives in Belleville, and having access to this program made it possible for me to visit her on weekends once a month while staff took care of Tom in our home.”- Margit, Caregiver
