Give the gift of empowerment.
The Caregiver Support Program is focused on supporting unpaid family caregivers to navigate the multiple challenges of caregiving, facilitated through 1:1 consultation; educational workshops; monthly support groups; and referral to community-based resources. Family caregivers today commonly take on several responsibilities, such as decision-making; household tasks; healthcare planning and advocacy; emotional support; and personal care. Our focus is on linking caregivers with relevant services and strengthening their skills so they can better manage stress and anxiety, while staying as healthy as possible.
NSCR’s Caregiver Support Program has a profound, positive impact on our community. With the aging population on the North Shore and increasing strains on the public health care system, the prevalence of caregiving is growing. NSCR want to ensure clients feel supported, connected, and empowered and supporting them on their journey is our priority.
