Picture it—a “Caregiver Aware” society! Imagine that family, friends, neighbours, employers, and health care providers all recognize and value the vital role of family and friend caregivers.
Join this national conversation to turn up the volume about the essential role of family caregivers. This special event will cover the story behind #CaregiverAware2019? What are the key issues of concern for Canadian caregivers? What do we feel hopeful about? Who are the “many” and what kind of “power” are we talking about?
Barb MacLean, Executive Director of Family Caregivers of BC, will be joined by Angus Campbell, Executive Director of Caregivers Nova Scotia, and Sandy Sereda, Executive Director of Caregivers Alberta.
This learning event will also cover:
• How can you help increase awareness? What action can you take to acknowledge yourself or someone you know?
• How will you show that you are #CaregiverAware2019?
• Being a caregiver aware means recognizing and supporting the caregivers in your family, workplace, and community because sometimes those who help others need help the most.
• How to be part of the movement towards a Caregiver Aware Canada and add to the power of many to make it happen.
