Wesway's Personalized Focus

Wesway Supporting Families

For the past 45 years, Wesway's focus has been to support families. Wesway has grown its services in a way that puts the needs of families first. Wesway understands that no two families are the same, and so the respite care it provides should be flexible in order to support those unique needs. Wesway continues to evolve to ensure it is able to meet the needs of each family it serves.

At Wesway, we listen. We tailor our services to meet the distinctive needs of each family we serve. We’re proud of our reputation for flexibility, diversity and innovation. We work in partnership with families to create personalized service plans built on individual strengths, needs and preferences. Caregivers are encouraged to arrange their periods of respite directly with their workers or volunteers.

Since nobody can predict when an emergency might occur – a death, illness, or other extraordinary situation, Wesway strives to support families through some of life’s most difficult respite care challenges, with crisis support.

Eligibility to receive services from Wesway is dependent on a number of variables.

"Whenever I need extra support, Wesway has been my lifesaver. I really don’t think I’d be able to keep caring for Mom at home if I didn’t have the respite Wesway offers."
