Enabling Caregivers to THRIVE: Who are you going to call?

One in 4 Albertans are caregivers, providing unpaid care worth $12 billion yearly. However, they remain an unsupported shadow workforce, despite being the backbone of the healthcare system. How can we all enable caregivers to thrive?

In this session, you will hear from University of Alberta’s Dr. Jasneet Parmar, Caregiving Alberta’s Johnna Lowther, and CCCE’s director of policy and government relations, James Janeiro on how to best use existing resources to support caregivers, create caregiver-friendly communities and workplaces, increase health care providers’ comfort and confidence to partner with and support caregivers, and develop provincial policies to support a national caregiving strategy.
