Caregiver Journey booklet

Your caregiver journey

Making the decision to relocate a parent, spouse or relative from home into a long-term care facility can be one of the most difficult decisions caregivers have to make. This caregiver journey tool  is based on the experiences and insights from family caregivers who have helped a family member make this transition.  It is intended for you to add information and record details to help you in your caregiver journey. This resource emerged from a collaborative research project between researchers at the University of Victoria and the Fraser Health Region.

 Two layouts are available to download:
