Welcome to ASLM’s Care Partner Support Space.  You can navigate through helpful resources, self-care activities, view tips and strategies to help you out while you are in the home and access our Support Groups!  

Be sure to check out our new What Your Social Worker Wants You To Know section for helpful information and resources directly from Alzheimer Society social workers

We hope you find a space that can help you through these unexpected times.

Care Partner Self-Care


Please Note:

We ask that you make sure when you participate virtually in exercise programs you take care to create a place that is clutter-free and safe for you. Make sure you have proper footwear and the area is clear.

Also, please only participate as much as your body feels comfortable – this is intended to be a program to gently move your body – so don’t push yourself beyond what feels okay. If you’d rather not participate but want to just be here and watch, that is totally fine too!

Activities:

 

  • Listen to Radiolab’s short podcast, ‘Things’

     

    Synopsis: From a piece of the Wright brother’s plane to a child’s sugar egg, today: Things! Important things, little things, personal things, things you can hold and things that can take hold of you. This hour, we investigate the objects around us, their power to move us, and whether it’s better to look back or move on, hold on tight or just let go.

Weekend

Pick your favourite activities from the week, or any that you missed! Come back on Monday for a new set of activities for the week.
