Shawville, 290 Rue Marion, Shawville, QC J0X 2Y0, Canada

À propos de l'évènement

The purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness among health network professionals about sexual and gender diversity and the issues faced by LGBTQI+ caregivers.  It will take place at the Shawville CLSC (Solarium A)  located at 290 Marion St, Shawville, QC J0X 2Y0.

In Quebec, 1 in 3 people is an ''unpaid cargiver''. Needless to say, being a caregiver is something that affects nearly everyone at some point in their life. But LGBTQ+ caregivers remain largely unseen by society. They often have to deal with situations where they don’t feel comfortable being themselves, which sometimes results in a reluctance to use health and social services as well as support services for unpaid caregivers.

This workshop will adress:

  • The definition of sexual and gender diversity and their components
  • The experience of caregiving within LGBTQ+ communities
  • Solutions to better meet the needs of LGBTQ+ caregivers
  • Testimonial
  • Q&A

Registration required
