Imagine if You Could Just be Their Daughter… Respite Care & Cupcakes

Posted Sep 22, 2017

If you followed the purple chalk on the sidewalks downtown Dartmouth on Thursday afternoon, you probably found yourself greeted by purple balloons, cupcakes, coffee, and the smiling faces of Always Home Homecare staff.

September 21st was World Alzheimer’s Day, and here at Always Home it was Coffee Break for Alzheimer’s Day! We collected donations, gave out information on Alzheimer’s Disease, and shared stories with members of our community.

Global News popped in for a coffee, and chatted with Janet Tobin, Business Development Manager at Always Home.

“There are over 400,000 Canadians living with this issue, and it’s a big one. So, we want to do whatever we can to bring awareness, help do a little fundraising, and shine a light on the important work being done by the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.”

When a loved one has Alzheimer’s, it’s impact can be two-fold in its effect on both the individual, and family members, or caregivers.

Imagine if when you visited your parents, you could just be their daughter. Not their caregiver, not their nurse, but, their loving child.

You could spend your time reminiscing, catalogue shopping, or whatever it is you love doing together.

Regardless of the medical or cognitive condition of your aging parent or loved one; this is possible with help.

Homecare doesn’t have to be scrubbing floors or personal care assistance all the time. It can be as simple as having an extra body in the house, or someone else to listen for once, while you don’t.

If you need extra help, please reach out. The assessment is free, and there is no obligation. We can help. Contact us.
