About the Lecture:

Join us for an insightful lecture tailored for informal and family caregivers who may be feeling overwhelmed and unprepared on their caregiving journey. This session is crafted with you in mind, offering a supportive space to explore essential aspects of end-of-life care. 

Our specialist, Eugene Dufour, will share practical guidance, fostering a sense of empowerment and confidence in navigating the challenges of providing care for your loved ones. Discover valuable insights, connect with others facing similar experiences, and find renewed strength in the community. 

By attending this session, participants will have the opportunity to learn essential caregiving techniques, effective communication strategies, and self-care tips. The lecture will also cover important topics such as managing caregiver stress, connecting with resources in the community, and enhancing the overall well-being of both the caregiver and the individual receiving care.

Let's embark on this journey together, gaining knowledge and support to ensure the well-being of both caregivers and their cherished recipients. This is an excellent opportunity to enhance your caregiving skills and find solace in shared understanding.
