Event description

Description

Take part in a day devoted to sharing best practices that support, empower and influence change for aging caregivers on both a community and systemic level.

Keynote speakers Nasreen Khatri, Clinician Associate, Rotman Research Institute and Amy Coupal, CEO, Ontario Caregiver Organization will share their insights on ways to create conditions of inclusion for aging caregivers; how self-care plays a role; and how to use life-long learning and capacity building strategies to better integrate caregivers in the health system.


Dr. Nasreen Khatri is a registered clinical psychologist, gerontologist, neuroscientist and educator who specializes in assessment, treatment and research of mood and anxiety disorders in older adults. Khatri joined Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute in 2012, where she studies how depression impacts the aging brain; the neural link between depression in mid-life and the onset of dementia; and non-drug treatments for depression and anxiety in older adults, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction and exercise. Among many accolades, Khatri received Ontario’s Leading Women, Leading Girls, Building Communities Award in 2016 for her insights into mental health and work at Baycrest.

Amy Coupal is the CEO of the Ontario Caregiver Organization, a non-profit funded by the Ministry of Health that was formed in 2018 to support Ontario’s 3.3 million caregivers. Amy is passionate about mobilizing change through knowledge sharing and building collaborative initiatives that positively impact the lives of individuals and communities. Amy has a Master of Education from the University of Calgary and is an Adler-trained coach. As a caregiver for most of her life, Amy has a deep understanding of the benefits and challenges associated with caregiving.
