Social and wellness activities
Yoga, Meditation and Social Activities. Various activities are offered throughout the year to help reduce the isolation that many family caregivers experience.
Our team, as well as the participants in the program, note with pleasure (and a bit of surprise) that the group activities by video-conference actually work very well and help break isolation. As well, not having to commute makes it more possible to participate for some.
Conferences for all
Free conferences, open to everyone at various locations throughout the year.
- Navigating The System (CLSC) – also available online
- Preserving the health of caregivers
- Testament and protection measures in case of incapacity
* Please note that as a preventive measure our live conferences are temporarily on hold, however, video-conferences are still possible on request.
The Legal Information Clinic offers up to three private sessions with volunteer lawyers and notaries (by appointment only). The service provides information on all types of legal issues and will refer you if your situation requires legal action.
To evaluate the health of your relationship, note the presence of the following elements in your interactions with the person you care for.
