Family Caregiver Centre

caregiver-centre-outside The first support service of its kind in the Eastern Champlain region of Ontario, the Family Caregiver Centre is dedicated to helping caregivers on their caregiving journey. Located in the Cornwall Community Hospital, the Centre gives caregivers access to a physical space where they can take a break, find information, or talk to someone who understands their experience. The Centre features a lounge, kitchenette and a family meeting room. Additionally, caregivers can pick up printed information, request an educational book on loan, and access www.embracecaregivers.com.
