AFC Webinar – Exploring the Intersections between Caregiving and Age-Friendly Communities

February 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



There are 4 million caregivers in Ontario; ordinary people who provide physical and emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour. A third of caregivers report they provide approximately 10 hours of care or more each week as they navigate the community for both themselves and the people they care for. Join us for a session with the Ontario Caregiver Organization as we learn more about Ontario’s caregivers, and explore the intersections between caregiving and Age-Friendly Communities.
