June 2014
A young caregiver shares her voice
Jun 25, 2014 11:42 AM

This year Sara Shearkhani's husband was diagnosed with cancer and she became his caregiver. Over 2.5 million Canadians are caring for a chronically ill or disabled loved one, and still caregivers are overlooked and their insight underestimated. Sara bravely shared her feelings about the marginalization of caregivers in an article published by The Globe and Mail and proved that we have much to learn from the experiences of caregivers.

We believe that caregivers are the unsung partners in a patient's health team. Rather than standing outside of a patient's journey, they are part of it, and they have a unique and valuable perspective.

Read Sara's article, "Caring for my sick husband I am going through untold suffering."
