January 2020

As we head into this New Year (and decade!) I want to thank each of you for your support over the last year. Whether you told a friend about our organization, became a monthly donor, or shared a post of ours on social media thank you! 

With your help Caregivers Alberta:

  • Listens to family caregivers on our Caregiver Advisor line – providing one-on-one support
  • Educates caregivers to look after themselves so they can better manage the overwhelming challenges
  • Advocates for caregivers in the healthcare sector and at government levels

By making a tax-free contribution, you can help us continue to provide support, education and advocacy.

As a not-for-profit organization, Caregivers Alberta relies on your contributions to help us continue to offer programming and support across the province. We are not a government agency and are not publicly funded. Your support truly does make a lasting impact on caregivers’ wellbeing. 

We thank you for your support!    

Sandy Sereda

Executive Director
