Who We Are
Like many conversations about care, ours started with a group of women around a kitchen table. Concerned about the wellbeing of caregivers, they wanted to find a way to better support each other through the many challenges of looking after someone in need. Now, more than twenty years later, that kitchen table conversation has evolved into a recognized, respected, and responsive organization supporting caregivers across Nova Scotia.
We chose the hummingbird as our symbol because it:
– Performs the impossible;
– Works at lightning speed;
– Survives extremes; and
– Often flies solo… just like a caregiver.
At Caregivers Nova Scotia, we’re focused on empowering caregivers, supporting their efforts, and recognizing the invaluable contribution they make both to those in need and to society in general. We do this through programs, support groups, advocacy, and services all geared toward the unique needs of friends and family giving care.
We are here to help in every way we can. Whether you require some information, would like to talk to someone on the phone, or attend one of our peer support groups, please contact us and we’ll be there for you.
Caregivers Nova Scotia is not a home care provider. We are not able to offer counselling services, or legal, financial, or medical advice, but we will refer you to organizations that do.
