Learn how you can support family caregivers in Hamilton, ON, and the surrounding area

Being a senior’s primary caregiver can be demanding and stressful. Many others are in the same situation. According to the survey, one in three Canadians age 45 to 60 reported being caregivers to aging family members. 80 percent of senior care is provided by friends and family.

A recharge could be anything. It can be just a day away with your close friends, an afternoon of personal time, or an exercise break. Or it could be a getaway or going away from all of it. Following ways helps you to get refreshed yourself,
