National Caregiver Day
Recognizing caring Canadians
From 5 minutes to an hour or even days, no amount is too small to show you care
8 million Canadians provide unpaid care to support someone with a long-term health condition, a physical or mental disability or problems related to aging. While caring can be an incredibly rewarding experience, it can also be overwhelming physically, emotionally, socially and financially. In fact, 21% of caregivers spend 20 hours or more/week on caregiving responsibilities that can range from helping with daily activities to providing complex medical care.
