New release: Infographic “Helping caregivers self-identify: Strategies for professionals and practitioners”

This infographic suggests useful strategies and resources to facilitate self-recognition among caregivers.
12 June 2024

Self-identifying as a caregiver lets someone better recognize their needs, access support services and feel less isolated.

Our new infographic “Helping caregivers self-identify: strategies for professionals and practitioners” presents strategies for raising caregivers’ awareness of their role. It also highlights groups of caregivers who are less likely to self-identify, such as women, parents of children with special needs and people from diverse ethnocultural groups.

The infographic is based on our report Caregiver Recognition and Self-Recognition: Challenges and Practices – now available in English and French on our website!
