Caregiver Support Services in Lake Country
In partnership with the United Way of the Lower Mainland, BC Ministry of Health and Family Caregivers of BC, LCHPS is launching a new initiative to help bring more local support to family and friend caregivers.
The Caregiver Support Program works to address the stresses of caregiving by focusing
on the well-being of the caregiver.
Through this provincially funded initiative, LCHPS offers:
Caregiver Support Group • One-to-One Subsidized Counselling Services • Older Adults Exercise Classes
• Silver Sitters - a Free Respite Care Service - more info to come!
We are seeking input from our local Caregiver's Community.
• Help us keep in touch about our Caregiver Initiatives! Please fill out the contact form.
