Caregiver Education Series

McCormick Caregiver Education Series

We recognize the multi-faceted role of providing care to someone with dementia. To help caregivers better understand their loved one’s journey and how they can best provide support while at the same time address their own emotions and needs, we have designed the Caregiver Education Series. This popular community program provides specialized support to caregivers by offering sessions on communication, care techniques, behaviour management as well as provides opportunities for shared group support and links to available community resources.

The Caregiver Education Series is offered as an eight-week series of evening group sessions that are delivered by a combination of dementia experts in research, education, communications and social work. The series is delivered four times per year to allow for the best time to suit a busy schedule.

Preregistration is required for the full program – we regret that registration for individual sessions is not available.
