Program description

The Caregiver Support & Wellness program is designed for individuals caring for a family member, partner or friend living with dementia or other cognitive or psychogeriatric issues. Our social workers provide one-on-one counselling to help caregivers problem solve, prevent burnout and improve their health and wellbeing. The support group offers a safe space for caregivers to share their experiences and learn from one another.

Program testimonials

One-on-one counselling


“Our talks resulted in a weight being lifted… shifting my thinking to not take on my [care recipient’s] problems as my own.”

Facilitated group support


“It was comforting because they understand. Others [outside the group] can’t relate or don’t want to talk about it, but it’s good to know you can talk to these ladies who want to talk about it.”
