Hats off to natural caregivers!
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.
