This research project is funded through the Provincial Initiatives Fund of the Healthy Seniors Pilot Project (HSPP; Social Development).
With this research project, we hope to enhance the quality of informal care provided to seniors aging at home. Training programs will be delivered to family caregivers with the focus of Care-services navigation & care skills development. The curriculum will be evaluated by pre and post questionnaires and focus groups.
Daycare for the senior, if required, will be provided in a separate room at the Municipal Building, and will be supervised by NBCC PN students or PSW students from those programs as part of their clinical placements.
