Many caregivers experience a sense of fulfillment from being a caregiver, but it can also be overwhelming – both physically and emotionally. The Ontario Caregiver Organization and the BounceBack Ontario program are working together to support caregivers and their mental health.
It’s important that caregivers support their own mental and physical health to ensure they can provide meaningful care to others. The Ontario Caregiver Organization acts as a resource to individuals who provide physical and/or emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour. Mental Health Caregiving
With BounceBack, caregivers can receive telephone coaching, skill-building workbooks and online videos to help them gain new skills to regain positive mental health.
The Ontario Caregiver Organization offers peer support groups and a 1:1 peer support program where caregivers can share their caregiving experience, challenges and solutions. Visit https://ontariocaregiver.ca/ for more information.
