Caregivers' Day

Printer-friendly version

"This day gave me a feeling of family, love, and union with other friends facing many of the same challenges as I" (quote from a Caregiver Participant)

 

Held in communities around BC, Caregivers’ Day is a chance for caregivers and former caregivers of ALS patients to have a day of respite. This event allows ALS caregivers to come together and share experiences. It also provides opportunities for caregivers to learn how to take better care of themselves and how to cope with grief.  

In 2015, there were 5 Caregivers' Day held in BC (2014-4, 2013-4).

Excluding administrative expenses, the annual cost of the program in 2015 was $7,600 (2014-$8,800, 2013-$6,600).
