Caregiving Connections for Seniors and their Families
Funded by the Ontario government, Caregiving Matters partnered with CHATS and other local agencies to bring “Caregiving Connections” to King Township to celebrate, engage and educate seniors and their families on a wide-range of support services and programs available in our local rural community. There were table-top displays and presentations by many groups. The agencies shared information about what their missions are, handed out materials and gave overviews of their programs and services. We have produced 12 videos of many of the groups talking about their work. Please take a moment to watch the videos and enjoy looking at the pictures of the event.
