Hats off to nat­u­ral care­givers!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

On the oc­ca­sion of Nat­u­ral Care­givers Week, which runs from Novem­ber 3rd to the 9th, Ap­pui Estrie would like to high­light the im­por­tant work of nat­u­ral care­givers in the Town­ships. Their con­tri­bu­tion, which rep­re­sents 90% of the care to­wards se­niors who have lost au­ton­omy, shows not only a gen­eros­ity, but also al­lows our se­niors to live in their homes longer which saves our pub­lic health sec­tor mil­lions of dol­lars.

Today, one adult out of four is a nat­u­ral care­giver of at least one se­nior. This spe­cial week gives us the chance to warmly thank them for their time and en­ergy, and in­form them about ser­vices that can be of help to them. To find out about these free ser­vices, call Info-aidant at 1 855 852-7796, from Mon­day to Fri­day, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. An in­ter­net site is also avail­able with help and in­for­ma­tion for nat­u­ral care­givers at lap­pui.org.
