An Atlas CareMap is a visual diagram highlighting the caregiver’s journey and those who care for the caregiver and care recipient. Creating a caregiver’s care map will increase the understanding of their journey, who is involved, and where additional care connections will provide additional support.
This workshop is co-hosted by Dorothy Ley Hospice and will help participants create their map, reflect on it, explore areas for additional help, and learn how to share their map to increase their support network. Participants will also learn about the many free resources they can use to help others create their care map within the community or a health care practice.
Participants are encouraged to attend the webinar “Enabling Canadians to Support Caregivers by Strengthening Care Connections“ on February 15, 2022 before this workshop. This webinar will provide background and research on the Atlas CareMap and the Care Connections Program.
