Caregiver's Support Circle

Caregiver's Support Circle, FREE 8-week program

FREE 8-Week Program

Are you, or someone you know, caring for a friend or relative who is elderly, living with dementia, or who has a chronic or acute illness?

Caring for a loved one can be both rewarding and challenging.

An 8-week caregiver's group will begin this fall to connect people who are providing care to their loved ones in the community. We hope to provide a space for caregivers to share experiences, gain support and take time for themselves.

Participation is free. Volunteer respite may be available.

For more information, call +1.604.223.7309.

This group offers free information and confidential discussion through support from trained volunteers.

Meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. — 8:30 p.m. on:

  • October 10, 17, 24, 31, and
