About the organizer

Organized by

If you support someone in need and feel anxious and overwhelmed with your caregiving responsibilities, you’re not alone. The Ontario Caregiver Organization (OCO) exists to support Ontario’s 4 million caregivers; ordinary people who provide physical and emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour. We support caregivers by being their one point of access to information, so they have what they need to be successful in their role.

Working collectively with caregivers, healthcare providers and other organizations, OCO draws on the variety of work that is currently being done to ease caregiver burn-out and improve the caregiving experience. We find ways to make existing services more broadly available so all caregivers, regardless of age, disease, diagnosis or location can access support. Where there are gaps, we work with caregivers and like-minded partners to find new and creative ways to fill them.

Si vous soutenez une personne qui est dans le besoin et que vous vous sentez anxieux et débordé par vos responsabilités d’aidance naturelle, vous n’avez pas à y faire face en solitude. L’Organisme de soutien aux aidants naturels de l’Ontario (OSANO) a pour mission de soutenir les 4 millions de personnes aidantes naturelles à travers l’Ontario: des personnes ordinaires qui apportent un soutien physique et émotionnel à un membre de leur famille, un conjoint, un ami ou un voisin. Nous soutenons les aidants en étant leur guichet unique d’accès à l’information, afin qu’ils aient ce dont ils ont besoin pour réussir dans leur rôle.

En collaboration avec les personnes aidantes naturelles, les prestataires de soins de santé et autres organisations, l’OSANO s’appuie sur la diversité des travaux en cours pour atténuer l’épuisement des aidants et améliorer l’expérience des soins. Nous trouvons des moyens de rendre les services existants plus disponibles afin que tous les aidants naturels, quels que soient leur âge, leur maladie, leur diagnostic ou leur lieu de résidence, puissent avoir accès à du soutien. Lorsqu’il existe des lacunes, nous travaillons avec les aidants naturels et des partenaires aux objectifs similaires pour trouver des moyens nouveaux et créatifs de les combler.
