About this workshop: 

With an aging population, elder care responsibilities are now becoming a reality for an increasing number of Canadians. Caregiving is a multifaceted role, and quite different from any other; many individuals may find it very challenging to investigate and learn about the critical issues they will face as a caregiver for older loved ones. This seminar will help caregivers enhance their decision-making ability, and highlight why caregiving is a positive and rewarding role. 


  • Anticipate and prepare for the care of an elderly loved one. 
  • Understand the changes that occur as one ages. 
  • Adapt a home to meet the evolving needs of the senior.
