This 8-week online program is for friends and family caregivers of people with mid- to late-stage dementia. Developed by the Reitman Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital, CARERS is a comprehensive dementia care program that supports problem-solving skill development and introduces the innovative use of standardized patients – actors trained to simulate real-life situations – so that caregivers, guided by expert clinical coaches, will learn how to address communication challenges.

Goals of the Program:

  • Enhance practical skills for caregivers
  • Improve caregivers’ coping and problem-solving skills
  • Enhance caregivers’ confidence in dealing with challenges
  • Improve caregivers’ social interaction and social support

Dates: Tuesdays, April 30th to June 18th, 2024

Time: 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: the group will be held online via Zoom

Registration and an assessment appointment via Zoom or in-person are prerequisites. An AST Social Worker will contact you soon for your assessment.
