Mindfulness for Family Caregivers

March 10 to April 21
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST
Virtual webinar

As part of our commitment to support the health and wellness of caregivers in Canada, the Canadian Centre for Caregiving Excellence is working with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Azrieli Adult Neurodevelopmental Centre to offer a six-week mindfulness program to learn and practice mindfulness skills for family caregivers, including those who provide care to people with disabilities, those who are aging, and those experiencing a challenging illness.

The program will be led by Sue Hutton, a mindfulness teacher with over 30 years of experience. The weekly sessions are designed for participants to learn and practice mindfulness skills to reduce stress and improve their quality of life.

Sessions will be held weekly over a six-week period, beginning Friday March 10th, 2023 (note: no session on April 7th).

About the program

Starting March 10, Sue will host a weekly 90-minute virtual session over a six-week period. Registrants will receive:

  • Audio links to short and accessible mindfulness practice specifically for family caregivers
  • Digital workbooks, literature and support materials.
  • Weekly email with reminders for home practice

Registration is required. Participants can join in a way that is comfortable for them. Being on camera is optional.
