Did you know 8.1 million Canadians are currently providing care to someone they care about? Caregivers provide about 80% of the care a patient receives in the last year of life. Pallium’s Care Connections Program strives to increase care connections that will support caregivers.
This session explores the Care Connections Program which consists of a suite of resources and activities every Canadian can engage in to support the caregiving journey. The primary tool used within this program is the Atlas CareMap, a simple visual diagram of the people involved in providing care to a caregiver or care recipient.
This session is for caregivers and anyone who wants to support a caregiver (including health care professionals).
