POSTPONED: Caregiver Retreat

03 Oct, 2020 - 04 Oct, 2020

CAREGIVER MENTAL HEALTH: PATHWAYS TO WELLNESS

RETREAT DETAILS

The Caregiver Retreat planning committee and ABLE2 have been closely watching ongoing developments related to the spread of COVID-19 and the impact that this had had on large scale events. We are committed to doing all that we can to support Ottawa’s efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus. ABLE2 takes the health and well-being of our guests and the community we serve very seriously, and your safety is our top priority. After careful consideration, we regret to inform you that we have decided to postpone the upcoming Caregiver Retreat and Conference in Ottawa. 

The event originally scheduled for October 3rd and 4th, 2020 has been rescheduled for Spring, 2021.  We know that you highly value our retreats and will be disappointed with this postponement, but the health risks and travel challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic are still too substantial to justify moving ahead with an in-person conference. Until we meet again in person, stay tuned to our website for more information on some virtual programming ideas we are working on for the caregiver community. We deeply appreciate your time, patience, and understanding as we attempt to adjust to these extraordinary circumstances. We hope you will add the 2021 Caregiver Retreat to your spring calendar and check back to our website regular for updates.

Caregiver Retreat

Caregiver Retreat

The retreat will celebrate the resilience that caregivers share, introduce them to new tools and ways of thinking, demonstrate the importance of connection, and will leave caregivers feeling positive about their role. The goal of the day will be to decrease caregiver stress, provide tools and strategies to assist caregivers in managing their own mental wellness, and provide informative, relaxing and interactive sessions. This is the largest caregiver retreat and conference in Ontario. Last year we had nearly 200 in-person attendees and 2000+ virtual viewers.
