The caregiver’s role

When you start accompanying and supporting a love one, your priority is not recognition. You think of supporting a loved one as a natural action, especially if it involves a family member. 

To see your role more clearly, it is necessary to discuss some popular beliefs that might have established themselves over time. Your recognition as a caregiver can help you identify your needs, your limits, maintain the balance between your personal, work and social life, and ask for help.

A unique journey 

The role of being a caregiver is a journey in constant flux depending on the intensity of the caregiver’s commitment and the relationship with the person receiving care. Just as every person is different, every journey is unique and can vary based on several factors, such as age, socioeconomic conditions or health status.

In addition to offering support, L’Appui pour les proches aidants d’aînés provides several practical tips. Discover, among others, the Ten caregiver myths.
