Canadian caregivers are in crisis. CCCE is responding with free mental health and wellness support, and with a new tool – social prescribing for caregivers.

Social prescription integrates social and medical approaches to care by prescribing non-medical interventions. This can include joining a peer support group, taking an art class, going on a hike or to see a movie and reconnect with friends; supports are customized based on the individual’s needs and interests.

 “The dynamic and demanding nature of my caregiving role can only work when I feel energized, rested and well.” – Helen Ries, Co-Founder, Siblings Canada.
