One of the many advantages to Circle of Care’s partnership with Sinai Health System is access to leading-edge training, such as the renowned Reitman Centre CARERS program. The eight-session skills-based group is designed to address the needs of family caregivers providing care at home to individuals with dementia.
Thanks to mentorship through the Reitman Centre, Circle of Care has been able to offer the program to caregivers whose loved ones receive our services. Through weekly meetings, participants are able to share common experiences and learn practical strategies for dealing with the challenges associated with being a caregiver. The evidence-based skills training teaches problem-solving techniques to manage challenging situations, and communication skills are improved through simulation and role playing.
