We are the Canadian Caregivers Association. We are a charity that works to help family caregivers preserve themselves through education, support and advocacy programs. We also seek recognition of the crucial role of family caregivers by the professional healthcare team members caring for their loved one.
We work with other organizations that provide support for the person with the disease. Some are listed in the useful links page. Our responsibility is to help the family caregiver throughout their jorney. The CCA was founded in 2004 and it is governed by a Board of Directors, the majority of whom are caregivers. Membership is open to all live-in caregivers in Canada.
