PEP Offers Saturday Morning Respite Time During Busy Holiday Season

PEP is excited to announce that they will be offering Saturday morning respite time for caregivers over the busy Holiday Season.

Who would benefit from the program?

Caregivers in need of respite time leading up to the busy Holiday Season as well as seniors looking for additional opportunities to socialize.

“We felt that there is a need to support caregivers during the busy Holiday Season. Caregivers would have the opportunity to run errands, complete holiday baking or meet a friend for lunch” noted Pauline Fitchett, Executive Director of PEP.

The respite time will run from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm on Saturday mornings starting October 28th and running through until, December 23rd. The respite time will be run by a health care professional and a volunteer. The cost is $30.00 for the 4 scheduled hours at PEP which would include a morning snack. Each Saturday will have a social hour as well as planned activities. Activities may include wrapping gifts and helping write Christmas Cards.

We ask interested participants to contact PEP to pre-register in advance in order to guarantee your preferred Saturdays.

To register, contact the Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults at 613-201-7172 or by email at

We are really looking forward to offering this time seniors in the community!
