Caregivers Alberta grew from the ashes of one caregiver’s burnout. A group of caregivers banded together to support each other. In 2001 they founded Alberta Caregivers Association, now Caregivers Alberta.
Our mission: To empower caregivers and promote their well-being.
Our vision: An Alberta where caregivers are valued and supported.
Caregivers Alberta is an organization of caregivers, for caregivers. We focus on the caregiver as an individual- helping them maintain their well-being rather than teaching them how to be better caregivers.
As Alberta’s only dedicated caregiver organization, we improve the lives of Alberta’s caregivers by:
- Providing group and one-on-one supports that help caregivers connect with others, navigate the system and look after themselves while providing care.
- Increasing communities’ capacity to support caregivers by educating professionals, promoting networking and referrals, and sharing programs
- Advocating for policy changes that will make a difference in caregivers’ lives
