Jeanette’s Reflections on the Enhancing Care for Ontario Care Partners Program

Not only do CARERS and TEACH participants learn new skills, but they also gain support through open dialogue and shared experiences with others in the group. The use of simulated patients to re-create real-life encounters allows for caregivers in the group to learn from and with each other. The Enhancing Care Program tailors problem-solving strategies to each caregiver, thus creating an individualized approach to each person’s unique set of challenges.
