Caring for Our Angels on Earth – Caregivers


Issue: Family Caregivers Guidelines | Mental Health Commission of Canada.

Being a caregiver to anyone who is unable to care for themselves, regardless of the cause, is the most selfless sacred gift we can do for another human being. Yet it comes with a high personal cost to the caregiver’s own emotional and psychological health. With Canada’s aging population, largely fueled by the Baby Boomer generation entering senior years, more and more people will become caregivers.  Being a caregiver for my dying Mother has opened my eyes to our need as a society to recognize this very important social issue and make it a higher priority to provide more means of support for caregivers. This is much larger than a health issue, it is a social issue.  It will likely affect all Canadians at one time or another in their life. What can you do to support our Angels on earth – Caregivers?
