National Carers Day 2019
April 2, 2019
Every year, Carers Canada recognizes and celebrates all caregivers across Canada on the first Tuesday of April.
The theme for the campaign reinforces a national health care policy priority “how palliative care is provided in Canada”. Building on the December 2018 release of the Framework on Palliative Care in Canada, the events for the day recognize the vital role of caregivers and their experiences in providing care and support for their loved ones with life-limiting illness. Understanding the vital role that caregivers have and the need to provide choice and supports for both the caregiver and patient will be reinforced through the theme “Caregivers’ experiences of palliative care in Canada.”
At Save Your Skin Foundation we appreciate the caregivers in our lives!
