Respite for caregivers

Victorian Order of Nurses

Victorian Order of Nurses

Caring for an elderly or incapacitated family member in the home can be a challenge.

The Victorian Order of Nurses created the Family Respite Centre to give caregivers a break. Families can bring their relatives to a day or overnight program at the Centre where music therapy, baking and other activities are offered to engage visitors. By giving families a much-needed break, VON hopes to encourage people to keep family members in their home.

Vancouver Foundation supported this worthy endeavor, because everyone benefits when families stay connected.
