Join our Online Support Group
Connect with other caregivers at our Online Support Groups. We’re here to help.
We welcome you to join other caregivers (ordinary people who provide physical and emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour) in a supportive environment to share challenges, successes, and concerns you may have within your caregiving role. Discussion will be driven by caregivers to discuss issues of highest importance to caregivers. Note: Online Support Groups are not intended for crisis support or mental health counselling
Each group is facilitated by a trained Peer Support Group Facilitator with experience as a current or former caregiver.
All discussions are completely confidential. We require that all participants sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement before joining the Online Support Group to ensure privacy and confidentiality.
The link to the NDA will be sent with your Online Support Group Registration. Please check your registration e-mail for details. Please note that you will not be able to attend the Online Support Group until we receive your signed NDA.
