Canada lags behind in caregiver support

irectly paid a certain amount of money, based on need. The U.K. also recently introduced a state pension for low or no-income caregivers. Such initiatives recognize the important role of caregivers in our society.

"Canada should consider a model that provides immediate and long-term financial support for caregivers," says Dr. Keefe. "This is the way forward. The next step is to examine in greater detail how these policies are administered and whether they will work for Canada."

Dr Keefe's work will be presented at a symposium being organized by the HCIC project team and hosted by Trent University in Peterborough.
