A Day of Caring for Caregivers

Day-of-Caring-Newsletter

Held in communities around BC, the Day of Caring 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.

Thank you to the Province of British Columbia and George & Verna Williams Endowment Fund for supporting our Day of Caring for Caregivers program.
