Guest House is one of the support services in the community available to people who are living with dementia. We provide short-stay respite, which means that we provide a temporary place for people with dementia to stay, while those caring for them have a opportunity to take a break from caregiving.
Guest House is specifically for people in the early to mid stages of dementia. We are a resource for understanding and adapting to living with dementia, and our focus is on maximizing that quality of life. Our network of support also includes fellow caregivers who have benefitted from Guest House and who volunteer to help others who are living with dementia, and those who are in the caregiving role.
Guest House was built with the sole purpose of providing care to people who are living with dementia. The staff here are trained to promote the strengths and abilities of each person through social, emotional and physical support. We understand dementia, and we can help you work towards an improved quality of life. We are a support system for you, and we encourage you to take advantage of this assistance.
