Caregivers get help in role as ‘invisible second clients’

Roles as informal caregivers are critical to the quality of life of the person they care for

Family caregivers of people with dementia are often called “the invisible second clients” for good reason.

As many Campbell River families have found, their roles as informal caregivers are critical to the quality of life of the person they care for, who generally requires increasing levels of care.

The support, though, can come at a cost: caregiver exhaustion. And that’s why the Society is bringing its free Family Caregiver workshop to the area on Thursday, August 20. Pre-registration is required. Contact Jane Hope toll-free at 1-800-462-2833 or jhope@alzheimerbc.org.

The workshop is free.
