CAREGIVERS ALBERTA

Caregivers Alberta was founded in 2001 by a group of caregivers who recognized that while there were supports for caregivers, many of them focused on the care recipient; support groups and education programs would discuss the progression of their loved ones illness or what to do if your care recipient fell. The founding members identified a need for supports that would focus on their needs as a caregiver.
