Click on the name of an area below to display the poster for that area's event.  This year, we are very excited to be partnering with Nova Scotia libraries to help raise awareness about family/friend caregivers. Some of the Teas will take place at libraries, where a librarian will speak about their programming, books, and other resources that may benefit caregivers and care recipients in their community. Forty-three libraries will also feature a Caregivers Nova Scotia display.
