Are you a caregiver who is caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias?
Do you feel that the responsibility is overwhelming at times?
You are not alone. We have programs designed to help you cope with the day-to-day stress through group support and individual programs.
Caregiver Support Group
A monthly support group for caregivers to discuss common issues, practice relaxation techniques and gain support from peers. This is a joint program with Meals on Wheels and More.
The third Tuesday of each month, 2:00 to 3:30 pm at 80 Sheppard Ave West.
North York Senior Centre provides free respite care while caregivers attend this program. A Personal Support Worker is available to care for the senior that the caregiver normally provides support to.
The Caregiver Binder was created as a guide to facilitate accurate excellent quality of support in the absence of the caregiver. This binder contains fillable templates that will assist anyone with
providing verbal, physical and emotional supports, will allow community resources to remain involved, and will provide direction to anyone caring for the home in case of an emergency.
