 Debbie Leaving

It is with great sadness that we tell you that Debbie Cameron-Laninga has left the association.
Debbie has been with Caregivers Alberta for 7 years as Program Coordinator, COMPASS Facilitator/Instructor and in 2017 as Acting Executive Director.
Debbie has been a tireless advocate for Alberta caregivers, working with provincial and federal contacts to increase awareness about caregivers issues.  She has worked with communities throughout the province to bring Caregivers Alberta programs to urban and rural caregivers.
Debbie will be sorely missed and we thank her for her hard work and dedication.  We wish her happiness and success in her new ventures.
 
2019 - Casino Volunteers needed

We are still in need of volunteers for our Casino on January 23-24, 2019.  It will be located at Casino Edmonton on Argyll Road.  These funds are vitally important to support the work we do, so if you can volunteer some time, it would be a great way to help Caregivers Alberta continue to assist caregivers throughout the province.   
For more information please call Sharon at 780-453-5088.

Keeping Safe on the Ice

Have your say.....

By participating in research, you have the opportunity to influence the supports that are developed for caregivers.
AHS - Provincial Seniors Health Portfolio - Palliative and End of Line Care
While establishing the importance of keeping the public informed about initiatives/best practice, there is a survey to find if their resources (newsletter/bulletin) are meeting the public needs.  You can find the survey at:https://survey.albertahealthservices.ca
Survey ID is 8lK35m630/
Survey will close March 1, 2019.

Share Your Story

Caregivers Alberta believes that every caregiver has an important story to share. That’s why we’re creating a new blog series that focuses on the real experiences of caregivers across Alberta. If you are interested in sharing your story with us, or have any questions please contact our Communications Coordinator, Tristyn Wilm: (TWilm@caregiversalberta.ca).
