Support for Caregivers
The Caregiving with Confidence program provides a variety of services to informal caregivers and their loved ones within the City of Winnipeg.
A & O recognizes that caregiving duties may prevent some clients in attending community based programs. The telephone based program allows caregivers to connect remotely to access support. Registered A & O Social Work staff make regular scheduled phone calls to caregivers to provide encouragement, information and support to let them know that they are not alone in their journey.
One on One Support
Ongoing one on one support is provided by A & O Social Work staff. This support provides caregivers with someone to talk to who will listen, and in turn can assist with emotional support, access to resources, services, and more.
Caregivers may feel alone in their journey. Support groups provide a safe environment for caregivers to discuss their situation with others, share ideas, and provide support to one another. This group meets (virtually) bi-weekly and is facilitated by a trained agency volunteer.
If you are interested in a community presentation about Caregiving (including who are the caregivers, the challenges of caregiving, potential for burn-out, and what we can do to help caregivers), please call intake at (204) 956-6440.
Donations are requested to help support this program.
