Take a moment on April 7 to recognize and say thank you to a family caregiver who makes a difference in your life.

A sincere thank you to those caregivers who took the time to participate in the joint survey offered by the Alzheimer Society, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, and Parkinson Society Canada. With your voice, together we can have greater impact. You told us what information and topics are important and interesting to you and this will be of great help as we work together, along with caregivers themselves, to develop online educational initiatives to help you care for yourself and the person you support. Look for further information on this project in the summer and fall. Until then, check out our current resources for caregivers.
