A Moment for You: A Conversation Among Caregivers

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 – National Family Caregiver Day

Members of parliament have voted unanimously to adopt the first Tuesday in April as National Caregiver Day. So, this April 6, we invite you to join us for a virtual conversation of the incredible unseen contribution caregivers bring to their care recipients, communities and the economy as a whole.

We will also be recognizing the generous support of The Ontario Trillium Foundation, our MPP supporters and caregivers everywhere.

It’s not easy. Being a caregiver is challenging, rewarding, scary, depressing, draining, frustrating, funny, sad and one of the most genuine acts of kindness there is. No matter the emotions you feel during this process, we want you to know that you’re not alone.

Whether you’ve become a caregiver gradually or due to a crisis by choice or by default, we understand the incredible challenges you face and the sacrifice you are making.

Guest Speaker, Donna Thomson (Author, Activist & Caregiver) will guide us through an open and honest discussion with contributions from caregivers of the frank realities of this often overlooked and deeply personal experience.
