Madeleine’s Reflections on the Enhancing Care for Ontario Care Partners Program
I remember a care partner telling me, “For the first time, someone is asking me how I feel. No one understands what I’m going through but here people know what I am experiencing because they are going through the same thing or something similar'”.
Care partners often have break-throughs during group sessions saying: “Now I get it”. It’s wonderful to see when someone gets it. They leave the group feeling empowered.
