Edward’s Reflections on the Reitman Centre and Enhancing Care Programs

CARERS strategies are “contagious” i.e. CARERS group members learn new strategies and spread them to other family members creating real change in the family system that brings harmony to the person living with dementia, siblings and other family members.

It’s fascinating to see relationships develop between group members, who have sometimes felt ignored or misunderstood by their social networks. The group members bond together like a new family and this positive experience “ripples” to each of their own social network.
