A young carer is a child, youth or young adult that provides physical, medical, emotional or other supports to a parent, grandparent or sibling. It is estimated that 17% of Ontario’s 3.3 million family caregivers are young carers between the ages of 15 and 24. There are approximately 10 programs across Ontario that support these young carers.
In this CAPHC Presents! webinar you’ll hear firsthand from an Ontario young carer, learn more from The Change Foundation about this invisible population of family caregivers and hear from Holland Bloorview’s Sibling Program – A young carer support program focused on supporting young carers of siblings who have developmental and physical disabilities, rare genetic conditions, and/or medical complexities or dual-diagnoses.
