About Caregivers!

Caring for a family member or friend is a tough job.​

A CARER (also referred to as caregiver or family caregiver) is a person who takes on an unpaid caring role for
someone who needs help because of a physical or cognitive condition, an injury or a chronic life-limiting illness.

Caregivers in our community.

• They may be holding down a full-time job or struggling to maintain employment.

  • May have other caregiving responsibilities… like raising children.

  • Maybe dealing with a health condition of their own or ignoring their own health because of the stress of caregiving.

They may be incredibly resourceful, but no one person can do everything. Caregiving, without a proper network of

support can lead to physical and emotional exhaustion and isolation.


Building a support network is one of the most important ways to prevent burnout. It can be helpful to do an inventory of professional, and family or friend supports that can help you with care tasks.

LCHPS is working to create a community of caring ...

LCHPS’s Caregiver Support Program is a new provincially-funded initiative working to bring more local support to family and friend caregivers who provide unpaid care for someone living in the community with higher needs – chronic disease, frailty or life-limiting conditions.

to support you through your caregiver journey.
