Are you, or is someone you know an unpaid, or paid, caregiver? Boost your caregiving knowledge with the Caregiving Essentials Webinar Series which is part of a free online course offered by McMaster Continuing Education. When a child in the family has health challenges, siblings are often recruited as caregivers. Sometimes even senior siblings care for each other. Whether you are caring for a brother or sister, or you are a parent whose future planning includes sibling caregivers, you won't want to miss this webinar with guest Helen Ries. For nearly 10 years she has been the caregiver for her brother Paul. Helen is also the co-founded Siblings Canada, an initiative supporting the particular needs of sibling caregivers of all ages across our country. Join Donna Thomson and Helen Ries for a conversation on the importance siblings can play in the caregiving role.
