Caregivers at least 55 years old in the Toronto area can now access Living Life to the Full, a free eight-week course designed to provide skills and knowledge to cope with life’s challenges.
CMHA Ontario and our partners are excited to offer this course (valued at $185 for the 8-week program) for free to caregivers aged 55+ living in Toronto as part of the ENRICHES Collaborative. This fun and interactive course is offered to groups of 10-15 people in community settings. Download the course brochure (PDF), or download an infographic on the program.
Those considering registering for a course should remember that caregivers are anyone supporting a family member or friend. Instead of caregiver, we may use words like sister, daughter, parent, or friend to describe ourselves. Some examples of individuals that may benefit include: a father caring for his child with Schizophrenia, a daughter taking care of her aging parent, a wife supporting her husband with dementia.
