Our SIDE BY SIDE project features support sessions on the last Saturday morning of the Month, where interactive presentations on identified health issues are shared by health professionals and fellow caregivers. Each session is facilitated by our Community Support Coordinator, a professional experienced in caregiving and support. Topics may include:

Cancer
Dementia
Diabetes
Mental Health
Heart Disease
Stroke
Children needing care
Nutrition & Obesity

 

Come and meet others dealing with the similar issues, and where ongoing support groups and resources of respite care may develop.

Coffee and/or muffin and lunch are included at the sessions for participants.  We realize the importance of a safe space and healthy nourishment for caregivers and any who need an extra “break time”!
