Cheryl’s lived experience and insight into caregiving
It wasn’t until I became the primary caregiver to my terminally ill mother that I truly felt the level of overwhelming responsibility, self-perceived inadequacy and isolation that I have heard from family care partners. This lived experience and personal insight raised my level of understanding, empathy and compassion for family care partners and has strengthened my commitment to ensuring the success of the Enhancing Care Program across Ontario.
