Bringing us together

 

This May—during Caregivers Awareness Month—we thought we’d do something special: bring caregivers, health-care professionals and service providers together for a province-wide, virtual conference.

What is “Caregivers Together 2022?

Building awareness, community and knowledge around caregiving is essential to empower Alberta’s nearly one-million caregivers. Without support, we all know that caregiver well-being is tough to sustain.

By getting together – even just virtually – we can continue to build a community of support for our caregivers, their care recipients, and those that engage with them during their journey.

For the first time ever, join us for a caregiver-centred, province-wide conference focused on education, resources and relationship-building.

Two streams of workshop programming

On May 12 and 13, we’re offering workshops for everyone: Alberta’s caregivers and the professionals who support them.
