Hey everyone, it’s the first week of CAREGIVERS month here on our blog. Though we post here a lot about caregiving and for caregivers, we thought it would be a great time to take a step back and to remind ourselves of what caregiving looks like.
Here’s A Day in the Life of a Caregiver…caregivers, this might not be exactly how your own day looks, but its our way of saying: we see you, we value you, and we appreciate all you do!
THANK YOU to all our caregivers for showing up for those they care for, day-in and day-out.
Hey everyone, we’re focusing our posts on CAREGIVERS this month. We know that one of the challenges faced by many caregivers is…connecting with other caregivers, and connecting those they care for with others.
So…here is a great resource!
The Family Support Institute of BC offers their Calendar for Connection, as well as several other, each month. We’ve posted their events before, but we wanted to make sure you’d heard about ALL their calendars!
