Like many conversations about care, ours started with a group of women around a kitchen table. Concerned about the well being of caregivers, they wanted to find a way to better support each other through the many challenges of looking after someone in need. Now, more than twenty years later, that kitchen table conversation has evolved into a recognized, respected, and responsive organization supporting caregivers across Nova Scotia.
We chose the hummingbird as our symbol as it:
- performs the impossible;
- works at lightning speed;
- survives extremes; and
- often flies solo... just like a caregiver.
May is Caregiver Awareness Month in Nova Scotia and we recognize and celebrate the unpaid caregivers in our communities in many ways. Each year we hold different events. Subscribe to our newsletter (via email or in-person) or keep in touch via social media.
