The Change Foundation has worked with family caregivers since 2015 to understand what it is like to be a caregiver. During that time, we have undertaken a variety of initiatives to improve the caregiver experience with Ontario’s healthcare system, including the Changing CARE projects and our work with young carers.
In this toolkit, we’ve packaged together all the tools, resources, reports and learnings we’ve put out along the way, in an effort to help others learn from our experience with co-design and caregivers. We will keep this page updated as our work, and learnings, progress.
Regardless of where your organization is in terms of caregiver involvement – building the case, starting the conversation, ready to implement or evaluating the impact – we’re confident there’s something in this toolkit to help you out.

Last year in ‘Spotlight on Ontario’s Caregivers,’ we set out to understand the experience, profile and needs of family #caregivers in Ontario.
Today, we can see how things have changed with the launch of the 2019 report: bit.ly/2QOu1RGpic.twitter.com/3UvdiXd7vT
