The Change Foundation has worked with family caregivers since 2015 to understand what it is like to be a caregiver. During that time, we have undertaken a variety of initiatives to improve the caregiver experience with Ontario’s healthcare system, including the Changing CARE projects and our work with young carers.
In this toolkit, we’ve packaged together all the tools, resources, reports and learnings we’ve put out along the way, in an effort to help others learn from our experience with co-design and caregivers. We will keep this page updated as our work, and learnings, progress.
Regardless of where your organization is in terms of caregiver involvement – building the case, starting the conversation, ready to implement or evaluating the impact – we’re confident there’s something in this toolkit to help you out.
@Sara_Shear and @wwodchis share "during this current COVID-19 pandemic, as we work hard to “flatten the curve” and ensure the system is not overwhelmed, it is especially important to have a strong structure in place to care for #caregivers." Read more: bit.ly/2wsQ2Sa
As we wrap up #CaregiverDay in Ontario, we want to say thank you to all the family #caregivers out there who are doing extraordinary work, we see you and we appreciate you! Thank you for all that you do - year round but also during these unprecedented times! pic.twitter.com/adiPB3WDi3
