As part of National Caregivers Week, the Centre de soutien entr’Aidants paid tribute to the women and men who care for an elderly loved one.
For this year’s Caregiver Recognition Day, which took place on November 13th 2021, a virtual program has been specially designed in partnership with Desjardins and Ian Lafrenière, Minister responsible for Aboriginal Affairs and MNA for Vachon, to mark the Centre’s 30th anniversary and to reach caregivers across Quebec.
We had the great pleasure of welcoming Sonia Benezra for a unique conference, which was broadcast live and free of charge online, as well as to a small audience in the studio. A well-known host and interviewer, Ms. Benezra shared on this occasion, with a good dose of humanity, humility and humour, her life experience as well as her journey as a caregiver for her mother, Perla.
We warmly thank our special guest for her emotional testimony, all our partners and sponsors who contributed to the success of this absolutely unique event, as well as all the spectators in the studio and at home. Thank you to the caregivers for their dedication and their undeniable contribution to our society.
