Services for caregivers

Palliacco provides respite, support and active listening services to caregivers. Our accompaniment volunteers are trained in palliative care, allowing them to take time for themselves or attend to other needs with peace of mind.

Respite program

The respite program is tailored to the individual needs of the caregiver, mainly in blocks of 4 hours during the day or the evening. Our accompaniment volunteers are also available overnight in end-of-life situations.


Individual support

We provide support, companionship, and a sympathetic ear to help caregivers through difficult times. We favour the expression of emotions and sharing experiences in a private and respectful atmosphere. Individual meetings take place at our 3 points of service.

Support groups & activities


Being a caregiver can be overwhelming and leave little time for self-care. Come enjoy a moment of well-deserved rest and meet other caregivers who share similar experiences and challenges.
