Caregiver Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in joining the Connecting the Dots for Caregivers project as a caregiver partner.

Connecting the Dots for Caregivers aims to improve the quality of care and experience for caregivers, patients and health care providers in Huron Perth. Being a caregiver can be rewarding and fulfilling but it can also be challenging and a significant source of stress and anxiety.

This important initiative, funded by the Change Foundation, brings together six local health care partners who will listen to, learn from and act with caregivers and healthcare providers to co-create supports, programs, and resources that address the needs of caregivers and ensures they feel valued, respected, engaged and supported in their important role.

Who is a Caregiver?
A caregiver is defined as family, friends, and neighbours who provide personal, social, psychological and physical support, assistance and care, without pay, for family members and friends in need. This support can be provided for any period of time.

How can Family Caregivers contribute to this project?
• Share your story
• Volunteer at events
• Be a member of a working group
• Group facilitation

Caregiver involvement is key to the success of this project. Sharing your personal story and ideas, allows us to learn from your experience and work towards positive change that will smooth transitions for caregivers throughout Huron and Perth counties.
