ReCharge is a program created for Caregivers and is made possible with the financial support of L’Appui Montérégie. This program offers two main services for Caregivers: a training workshop and a support group.
The ReCharge Training
is a series of 7 workshops facilitated by a clinical nurse that responds to the needs of English-speaking caregivers throughout the Montérégie-Centre. This training provides a variety of technical and practical health care topics for people who are taking care of a loved one, a family member, a neighbour or a friend.
Some of the health care topics covered in this training are: basic first aid, the mechanics of the body, medical emergencies like strokes & falls, Alzheimer disease support, how to prevent Infection and contamination, among others.
Within the training, we also provide mindfulness activities for the Caregivers to learn to cope with stress. These mindfulness activities are taught by professionals in professions like yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Jong, meditation, music, art, drama therapy and more.
The ReCharge Support Group
is guided by a social worker on a monthly basis and is aimed to help Caregivers find ways to manage their stress, to provide tools to make their daily tasks easier and to share their experiences with other caregivers.
