Tuesday, April 7 was National Caregiver Day – a day to celebrate and honour Canadian carers. At the Alzheimer Society, we recognize how important the support and care that you provide to a friend or family member is to their well-being and quality of life.
We know this is an especially difficult time and you may be missing personal connection with a loved one in isolation, or you may be struggling to maintain routine at home without your regular programs and activities.
You are missing your support groups too, and the connection they provide.
As we look for new ways to deliver programs and support through this time of uncertainty and isolation, please remember to call us. We are still here, and we are still ready to talk.
To all caregivers: we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
