About Caregivers Alberta
Caregivers Alberta is a charity that aims to empower caregivers and promote their well-being. We believe that caregiving is too big an issue for one organization. As a result, we partner with non-profits, governments and businesses to share knowledge, programs and materials to build our province’s capacity to support its caregivers. We are Alberta's only caregiver specific organization.
Since our beginnings, we have worked hard to maintain the grassroots of the organization, ensuring that we are always grounded in the experience of caregivers. While we have considerable support from professionals, researchers, and other interested people, our focus on the caregiver is maintained by ensuring that caregivers remain heavily involved in every aspect of our work.
