Our first priority is your health, so we’re offering as many programs as possible online to ensure you can safely participate during the pandemic. Now, more than ever, it’s important to connect and support each other. MODC offers online programs and platforms for caregivers, that connect you with resources, tools, and a community of people who understand. MODC's Caregiver Project hosts online events, talks and support sessions, bringing together caregivers, caregiver experts and advocates to share their lived experiences and bright ideas. The aim is to assist families and friends caring for a loved one after stroke or a chronic illness. We offer a number of online events, activities and resources:
These sessions provide tools to meet the unique needs of caregivers with the aim of reducing stress, learning new coping and problem solving skills. The support sessions are used in conjuction with the Caregiver Support Session Handbook that will guide you through each session and act as a resource for information throughout your caregiving journey.

Transitioning to the home can be a very complex and challenging process for stroke survivors and their family. March of Dimes Canada's After Stroke program is here to support everyone involved in the process.
After Stroke is focused on providing community-based supports that lead to community re-engagement with the goal of remaining active and healthy.
