Caregiver Heroes

Family caregivers do many amazing heroic acts. They help with household duties, take people to medical appointments, help with shopping, meals, dressing, hygiene and many more tasks. Family caregivers often have great stress, assume extra financial burdens and may suffer from burnout.

Caregiving Matters believes that the care of the ill by family members and friends is very important and deserves greater recognition and appreciation by our society.

“Caregiver Heroes” is dedicated to appreciating, acknowledging and simply thanking family caregivers for all they do. “Caregiver Heroes” supports the concept of “Passing It Forward” with gifts from three GTA retailers.
