Event description

Description

The Regional Geriatric Programs of Ontario is listening to caregivers!

If you are a family member or friend caregiver to a frail senior (65 years or older), your story and experience is valuable. Do you help your family member or friend in one or more of these areas: walking; managing medications; managing pain, getting to and from the bathroom; socialization; managing nutrition; and/or helping with remembering? Tell your story so that other caregivers can benefit from your insight and experience with frailty.

Join us to share, have lunch, and network with other caregivers in order to help create educational materials that will support caregivers of frail seniors all across Ontario.

Free lunch will be served.
