Student Lifeline – Caregivers

More than eight million Canadians — including many young people — say they’re caring for a friend or relative who is ill, disabled, or elderly. It could be at home, nearby, or from a distance. Although caregiving is rewarding, It’s also hard work and it can be one of life’s most challenging experiences.
