CPHC Celebrates National Caregiver Day

It's Family Caregiver Day today.

It aims to recognize the over 3 million family caregivers living in Ontario.

The Community & Primary Health Care (CPHC) says there is a wide list of those caring for partners, grandparents, and children who have illness, disability, or challenges related to aging.

In a release, the CPHC and the Ontario Caregiver Coalition (OCC) says the day aims to raise awareness about the important work they do.
“Caregivers are the unsung heroes of our health care and social service system,” says Cheryl Perera, Chair of the OCC. “It is our responsibility as a province to recognize their contribution and while we have made progress, we still have a long way to go to truly recognize the important work that caregivers do.”

The CPHC says if you want to get involved use #thxcaregivers on social media, or sign their card on their website.
