Are you caring for a loved one?

This Caregiver Program Series, as adapted from the Caregiver Network of Niagara, is a 5-week group for adults offered to support and guide caregivers in their care-giving role.

During this series participants will learn ways to feel more empowered and confident by building and improving skills as a caregiver.
