Family Caregiver Wellness Workshops

Become a confident caregiver!

NorQuest College offers a wide range of workshops taught by experienced healthcare professionals to help caregivers gain the confidence and knowledge they need to care for a loved one at home and/or needing end-of-life care.

You’re not alone 

Being a family caregiver can feel like a lonely journey. You’re constantly making sacrifices to care for your loved one. And while most of your social circle doesn’t understand the responsibilities and commitments that come with providing home or end-of-life care, our workshop participants and facilitators understand your challenges. 

By providing support and resources, our workshops are created to improve the quality of life for family caregivers and their loved ones who require care

Convenient & accessible

With many caregivers already lacking time, we’ve made our workshops convenient and accessible, so no matter your location, schedule, or financial status, you can attend and learn the skills necessary to provide confident care.

  • Online or in-person workshops
  • Can be completed at your own pace
  • 100% free with workshops only 2 hours long

Workshop topics 

Our family caregiver workshops cover a range of different topics, including: 

  • Assisting with mobility-safe practices 
  • Navigating the healthcare system 
  • Assisting with personal and intimate care 
  • Pain monitoring and management for the caregiver 
  • Palliative and end-of-life care 
  • Effective communication: Guidance for the caregiver 
  • Supporting a person with dementia 
  • Infection control and prevention 
  • Mealtime & medication assistance 

More benefits of attending a workshop 

Along with the specialized skills you’ll learn, we’ll also suggest complimentary technologies that you can use to make your daily activities easier and less stressful. You’ll also learn how to perform health observations and watch out for any negative changes. This skill will help you feel empowered to communicate more effectively with your loved one’s healthcare provider and aid in earlier detection of declining health. 

 A community that understands you 

Our initiative doesn’t stop with knowledge and skills transfer. We also provide a safe, supportive community for you to connect with other caregivers. Through our community learning centers, you can stay connected to workshop participants and facilitators while receiving ongoing support. 

All our facilitators undergo comprehensive diversity and inclusion training in order to create a safe, welcoming environment for all participants.
