Support Caregiver Meetings


"The Caregiver's journey is easier when shared with others."

ElderCare Edmonton, Caregiver Support Program, provides multiple support options to caregivers of seniors who have barriers to community participation. All supports are focused on empowering caregivers, reducing social isolation and reducing the stress which can lead to burnout, health risks and conerns and feeling overwhelmed.

We Can Help! Eldercare offers weekly facilitated caregiver support groups: Our caregiver support groups offer caregivers a supportive place to address the challenges of caring for a family member or friend. The Caregiver Support Group is a place to share common experiences with other caregivers to gain solutions, coping strategies, new skills, self care and help in navigating the many systems in the care journey. Caring for an aging loved one can often feel overwhelming. At Eldercare, we offer support for families caring for a senior with emotional, cognitive, and/or physical limitations within the community. The Caregiver Support Program offers a supportive place to address the challenges of caregiving.
