Caregiver Webinars

As health charities supporting individuals with neurological conditions, the Alzheimer Society, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, and Parkinson Society Canada have natural commonalities in the demographics they serve and support. A key commonality is the caregiver, who provides support to people living with these respective diseases. Recognizing that there are many topics which appeal to all caregivers in the broader disease community, our three organizations decided to partner to offer online education initiatives

The first of these initiatives took place on December 10th, 2015. To watch a recording of the Taking Care of Yourself through the Ups and Downs of Caregiving webinar event, please click here.

The second webinar took place on May 26th, 2016. To watch a recording of the Learning How to Get the Help You Need: How Caregivers can Navigate the Health and Social Care System webinar event, please click here.
