National Carers Day…Tuesday, April 4th
2017 NATIONAL CARERS DAY
Canadians thank carers for their contributions
On the first Tuesday of April, Canadians come together to recognize family members, friends, neighbours and other significant people who take on a caring role to support someone with a diminishing physical ability, a debilitating cognitive condition or a chronic life-limiting illness. Known as National Family Caregiver Day or National Carers Day, this special day encourages all Canadians to pay tribute and recognize the valuable contribution of family caregivers to our lives and our society as a whole.
