Advocacy - National Carer Day
Recognizing and supporting caregivers is a priority for home care providers across the country.
Together with Carers Canada, the CHCA is proud to launch the 2019 National Carers Day campaign to recognize the millions of caregivers who provide care and support for a loved one who is dying.
The CHCA is pleased to support awareness of the Framework on Palliative Care in Canada, and through our national project build operational excellence in home-based palliative care.
Caregivers’ perspectives on home-based palliative care
Involving caregivers in home-based palliative care is essential. Engaging their expertise and knowledge in advance care planning, early assessment and service delivery, managing equipment, supplies and medication and supporting communication among the health care team is vital.
Learn about the different settings of palliative care and caring experiences
Receiving care and dying in the place of choice are measures of good quality care. Knowing and what is and where helps
individuals at the end of life and their caregivers make informed decisions and be better prepared.
On Tuesday April 2, join the national campaign by sharing your experiences in palliative care in Canada.
