Caregiver Support
As North American lifespans increase and funding for health and social services diminishes, Canadians are increasingly finding themselves responsible for the care of senior family members, spouses and friends.

This section includes resources on how to care for yourself as a caregiver. It addresses the mental, emotional, social and practical needs of caregivers. 

Often it is necessary to reach out for help and address the signs of stress and burnout that caregiving imposes.  People are often isolated in the caregiving experience, but there are many resources, ideas, and tricks available to help you through.
