No matter the depth of your love and kindness, caring for another person involves time, commitment and sacrifice. 

Caregiving can be hard work at the best of times. 

You might even be feeling overwhelmed and when you’re burned out, it’s tough to do anything, let alone look after someone else.

Taking care of yourself isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity.

We offer programs to help family caregivers learn different strategies to cope and care for themselves, while they care for others. Programs are free and are offered in both English and French, through The Caregiver Network of Niagara.

The network is an initiative created through the partnership of family health teams, community health centres, the Alzheimer Society of Niagara, the Centre de santé communautaire, and Hospice Niagara. 

You do not have to do this alone. You care for them … We care for you.

Caregiver Education Series

Caregiver Education Series

Family caregivers share generous amounts of their time, energy and compassion as they support the health and wellness of another person. 

And sometimes, caregivers need care and support too.

The responsibility and commitment to caregiving can impact a caregiver’s health and well-being. Demands of caregiving can feel exhausting and overwhelming. It can be lonely, and stressful to give so much of yourself to another person. 

The Caregiver Network of Niagara offers programs to help family caregivers manage stress and build resiliency in their own lives, as they explore ways to cope and care for themselves, while they care for others. 

Taking care of yourself, helps you take care of others.
