In 2012, eight million Canadians provided care to family members or friends with a long-term health condition, disability or challenges associated with aging. Statistics show that caregivers of these family members overwhelmingly would like more help than they are currently receiving.

Join us to learn from our graduate students—the researchers of tomorrow—about the research they are undertaking with family caregivers and their experiences caring for those with an acquired brain injury, dementia, or frailty and how those experiences can be improved.
