NEW WEBSITE FOR HURON PERTH LAUNCHED
Detailed information on services and supports for caregivers
On April 03, Connecting the Dots for Caregivers officially launched http://caregivershuronperth.ca, a website of resources for caregivers and healthcare providers in Huron and Perth counties. The site was developed by the project’s co-design teams to help provide easier access to information, tools and resources online, anytime. Connecting the Dots heard loud and clear that a website like this will help caregivers and healthcare providers access the resources they need to make their role easier and improve the caregiver journey. The site contains a detailed listing of resources including:
Programs, services and supports for patients and clients
Programs, services and supports for caregivers
A detailed list of local and regional events
Stories and tips for caregivers, by caregivers
Other Connecting the Dots resources like the Time to Talk Toolkit
A quick reference list of who you can call for support
Step-by-step “how to use the website” video, with examples
Please take a few moments to review the website and share it with anyone who might need help to find the supports they need. Stay tuned for a printed handout/guide that will be available soon.
