Calling All Caregivers

Do you care for or have you ever cared for an aging loved one at home? NorQuest College needs your input!

The Family Caregiver Wellness Initiative (FCWI)

The Family Caregiver Wellness Initiative will help families transition and/or continue into the world of caring for their aging loved ones living at home. The aim of the FCWI is to support family members by empowering them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to care for their loved one at home. NorQuest College has developed workshops and online tutorials to provide supports to caregivers to learn the right and safe skills to be a caregiver. The initiative is not meant to displace homecare services nor to overburden the caregiver.

Join our pilot workshop to provide feedback to us!

Who is a family caregiver?
