RIAF Webinar – The Critical Role of Caregivers: Insights from Ontario’s Caregivers and Strategies for Caregiver Inclusion and Support
January 25, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
There are 4 million caregivers across Ontario, providing care to family members, partners, friends, or neighbours, and providing an estimated 75% of the care in our healthcare system. Caregivers play a critical role in caring for older adults, and the support and inclusion of caregivers is essential to our healthcare system. This webinar will focus on key insights from caregivers across Ontario from the Ontario Caregiver Organization’s December 2022 Spotlight Report, discuss the impact of caregiving on caregiver well-being, offer practical strategies and tools for healthcare settings and providers to include and support caregivers, and provide an overview of programs and services that are available for all caregivers across Ontario offered by The Ontario Caregiver Organization.
