Family Caregiver Week

From May 3rd to May 9th many caregiver support organizations and community groups around the province will celebrate BC family caregiver week to recognize and thank the many unpaid family and friend caregivers who dedicate their time in the acts of compassion that they bring. Family caregivers are a key part of the healthcare team in BC who provide care and support to family and friends who cannot support themselves in poor health, old age or with disability.

Family caregiver week is important because public awareness must be raised to recognize the vital roles that caregivers play in the province of British Columbia. If you know a caregiver, take some time out of the week to thank them for the work that they’ve done, as their job often detriments their own health for the sake of the health of others, a truly noble sacrifice of dedication and commitment.

Watch for events held in the community during Family Caregiver week, May 3rd to May 9th

See a need, fill a need.
