ALS caregiver support Group

In partnership with Nova West Island and with the generous support of the Tony Proudfoot Fund, monthly meetings are organized with fellow ALS caregivers to discuss some of the challenges each are facing. Although each person engages according to their comfort level, caregivers are encouraged to participate by sharing their personal experiences with others who are in a similar situation.

When: The 1st Monday of every month from 6-8 pm

Where: 447 Beaconsfield Blvd. Beaconsfield, H9W 4C2

Nova West Island will provide free of charge:

  • Two experienced home care nurses to facilitate the group
  • Health Care Aides, for home support, [in our catchment area] to facilitate the caregivers attendance at the meetings

Possible topics and guest speakers:

  • Home adaptation
  • Community resources
  • Insurance coverage
  • Compassionate Benefits
  • Spiritual guidance
  • Social worker/Family Therapist
  • Children Support
