About it

Caregivers expressed themselves:

During a public consultation held in 2014, caregivers to the elderly expressed their needs. All along their journey, caregivers keep looking for information on what to do, which steps to follow , who to contact, possible resources, etc.

We listened to them:

To facilitate their role as caregivers, a group of partners worked together to create a guide both practical and simple to use. The « Guide to Practical Support for caregivers » offers :

  • the 8 stages of the journey : with tips, advice and tools for each stage (green tabs)
  • the caregivers’ needs : resources to meet their needs (yellow tabs)
