Caregivers are family members, partners, friends or neighbours who provide personal, social, physical, and psychological support to someone in need, without getting paid. We know this work can be very challenging, and we want to make sure that you – as a Caregiver – have the supports you need.
Making your care journey easier
Visit our Community Programs page to explore the many programs and services we offer, particularly the Adult Day Program, Keeping Active, Engaged, Informed, Home Help & Maintenance, and Safety and Security.
Visit the ‘Caregiving Strategies’ site from the Regional Geriatric Programs of Ontario to access a wide range of educational materials, including strategies to care for yourself, social engagement, staying active, nutrition, medication management, and more.
Sign up for ‘Powerful Tools for Caregivers’ online workshops provided by the Central East LHIN. Over the course of six weekly classes, caregivers develop a wealth of self-care tools and receive a copy of The Caregiver Helpbook.
Both the Caregiving Strategies website and Powerful Tools for Caregivers workshops links are available at the bottom of this page, on the right-hand side.
