CMHA Ontario would like to thank Canadians who contributed to A Dollar A Day Foundation in support of a program that helps caregivers over 55 develop coping skills to maintain their mental health.
On Dec. 7, 2018, the A Dollar A Day Foundation announced that it raised $15,000 for CMHA Ontario’s Living Life to the Full (LLTF) program.
LLTF is an evidence-based, eight-week, skills-building course designed to provide participants with the knowledge to cope with life’s challenges. LLTF has been tailored to several different audiences. A Dollar A Day Foundation chose to support the program geared to caregivers 55+ because of the unique challenges these people can face.
A caregiver can be anyone supporting a family member or friend. Some examples of individuals that may benefit from LLTF include: a father caring for his child with Schizophrenia, a daughter taking care of her aging parent, a wife supporting her husband with dementia.
