SSO Celebrates National Family Caregiver Day

The Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO) recognizes the first annual Family Caregiver Day.

According to the Ontario Caregiver Coalition:
  • There are over 3 million unpaid caregivers in the province, providing support to loved ones facing illness, disability or challenges associated with aging.
  • Over 500,000 family caregivers in Ontario are between 15 and 24 years old. There are many caregivers who are even younger. 
  • Caregiving is not often recognized as separate from being a good friend, child, parent or spouse, but it is a distinct role with unique challenges and solutions.
