Spotlight on Ontario’s Caregivers
The second annual Spotlight on Ontario’s Caregivers report builds on the inaugural 2018 report and for the first time demonstrates trends in the caregiver experience in Ontario. We are pleased to release this report in collaboration with the Ontario Caregiver Organization on the state of caregiving in Ontario.
The report, and the survey it is based on, looks closely at the role of the caregiver within the healthcare system, the type of caregiving tasks they are engaged in, the time and financial commitment required, and the impact of being a caregiver on their mental, physical and emotional state.
Stephane is a young caregiver who lives in Ottawa and assists with caring for his younger brother who has cerebral palsy.
Don has been caring for his wife since her diagnosis with early onset Alzheimer’s five years ago.
