Caregivers have told us it’s hard to find the information they need, when they need it. In order to make information more accessible to caregivers, the OCO will be launching two new resources for caregivers this fall:

The NEW Ontario Caregiver Helpline. The new helpline will provide caregivers with support and information about local and provincial services. We’ll help you access the resources and support you need at any stage of the caregiving journey. 

The Caregiver Starter Kit . In collaboration with caregivers, the OCO will launch a starter kit that will help caregivers as they begin their caregiving journey.

These are just two of the initiatives we’re working on to better support caregivers across Ontario. Watch for more information in the coming months on these initiatives and more!
