Liza’s Reflections on the Enhancing Care for Ontario Care Partners Program
Group participants complete the CARERS Program feeling more emotionally aware, and most importantly, more aware that their complex emotions are a very natural part of the caregiving experience. Group participants also understand that their emotions can make it difficult to problem solve and to respond to the person living with dementia in an effective way. However, by using the skills learned in the program, they can take a step back from their situation and gain an objectivity that can help them be more effective communicators and problem solvers.
