Are We Violating the Human Rights of Family Caregivers?
Canada’s Charter of Human Rights ensures the basic rights of all its citizens. Many believe that asking caregivers to do 80% of all the care necessary to support a sick loved one infringes on those rights as it can jeopardize their financial and social welfare and their protection under the law.
With more than 8 million caregivers in Canada and those numbers steeply on the rise, a conversation about caregiver rights has important significance for the future of the caregiver movement, health care systems, and workplaces.
In this important webinar event, Nancy Guberman, Caregiver Researcher, and Lucy Barylak, Caregiver Expert, will talk about their ground breaking research into the topic and tell you why they believe your fundamental rights as a citizen and caregiver aren’t being respected.
