Provincial - CARES Caregiver Support Group for Parents of Adults(Online)
The CARES Caregiver support program gives families a safe place to learn new skills, share, be heard and connect in a way that fosters resiliency.
CARES is an eight-week group counselling program designed to target the social, emotional, and psychological challenges that can arise among caregivers of children with complex needs. We help caregivers care for themselves because the more they show up for themselves, the more they can show their loved ones the way.
