Are you a family member or friend who provides unpaid care for a loved one living with a disability, illness, or aging?

More and more of our community members are taking care of a family member, a friend, or a neighbor as a natural caregiver. A natural caregiver’s role is often challenging and complex; but this unpaid role is extremely valuable and has a real physical, emotional and social impact for you and the person you are helping.

Join us for a 6-week Natural Caregiver Course designed to support and educate those who are either providing care to a loved one or for those who are embarking on that journey. Taught by qualified professionals and community experts in a friendly and modern classroom environment, this course provides caregivers or those who will become caregivers the necessary tools, tips, and techniques when caring for a loved one.

What participants have said about this course:

“I know my life is changing and you have helped me to understand how important my role is on this new road with my husband.”

“Many (caregivers) have ad-hoc experience ‘on-the-fly’. A course like this helps us to reflect and organize our efforts more efficiently and learn new methods and techniques”

“I was so pleased to see that there were other like-minded people who were interested in this course and I learned as much from talking with them as I did from the course. It is a great forum for exchange of ideas, experiences and needs. “

The next Natural Caregiver Course starts in Châteauguay on October 12th. Additional courses to be offered in Brossard as well as other communities in the Montérégie South Shore territory.
