An Atlas CareMap is a simple, visual diagram of the people involved in providing care to a caregiver and care recipient. A care map increases the understanding of a caregiver’s journey, who is involved, and where additional care connections can provide additional support.
This workshop, co-hosted by Compassionate Communities Kingston, helps participants create their map, reflect on it, explore areas for additional help, and learn how to share their map to increase their support network. Participants also learned about the many free resources they can use to help others create their care map within the community or a health care practice.
This session is for caregivers and anyone who supports caregivers or seniors, including health care professionals and organizations who run community programs for seniors.
