Watch Hot Talks on Health, A Spotlight on Young Carers

On November 20, 2017 we hosted our second Hot Talks on Health event focused on family caregivers. The event shined an important light on the often invisible population of young carers. We heard keynote commentary from the U.K. on the state of young carer supports, the journey to legislation recognizing the vital role of young carers, and how young carers are supported (or not) in the healthcare system. In addition, we heard the story of an Ontario young carer, as well as insights on the caregiver recognition and support movement in Ontario.

Panelists:

  • Abbigail, Ontario young carer
  • Jenny Frank, Strategic Consultant, Young Carers England
  • Janet Beed, Health Care Consultant and Advisor, Ontario Caregiver Initiative
