Caregiver Help

If you, or someone you know, is a caregiver to a child, an aging loved one or a friend, the emotional, physical and psychological overwhelm, stress and fatigue that can be prevalent may be causing many challenges.

To help you or a loved one in your journey of caregiving, we interviewed Colette Assellin, a retired nurse of 40 years who now works privately with caregivers. Having been a caregiver most of her life, she understands the challenges caregivers face as they provide care for their loved ones. In this interview, Colette and Pierrette share tips and resources to help you, or someone you know, prevent caregiver burnout and stress, in addition to helping you find comfort in your role as caregiver.
