Caregiver Information Sessions are one of our most popular programs. Information Sessions provide an opportunity to connect with other caregivers and learn about topics important to caregivers.

Sessions are generally offered every second Wednesday in the afternoon (1:30 to 3:00 pm) and evening (6:00 to 7:30 pm) unless noted otherwise. Sessions are located at Fulton Place School, 10310 56 Street NW, enter on the east side (56 St) of building. The ‘Caregivers Resource’ room opens 15 minutes prior to session time. Street parking is free.

Attend whichever sessions interest you. Refreshments will be provided. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required and closes the day prior to session. The sessions may be cancelled due to inclement weather or low registration (minimum 5); we will do our best to contact you in advance.

To REGISTER (indicate your name, contact information and preferred session – afternoon or evening) or if there is a topic you’d like to see, please contact the Caregiver Advisor at advisor@caregiversalberta.ca or call 780-453-5088 to register with our staff.
