A caregiver is someone who cares for a loved one who is permanently or temporarily incapacitated due to a disability, accident, illness, or advanced age.
Contrary to popular belief, living with your loved one is not necessary to be identified as a caregiver. As soon as you compensate for a loved one’s loss of autonomy by running errands, helping them get dressed, accompanying them to medical appointments or meeting any other need, you are a caregiver.
The services offered by the Centre de soutien entr’Aidants are varied and adapted to your needs. A simple call is all it takes! Don’t wait until you are exhausted before putting resources in place.
