This summer, Hospice PEI is researching caregiver support and resources throughout Prince Edward Island. By doing so, we hope to learn how to support our caregiver communities better.
Caregivers on Prince Edward Island provide a valuable service, and we would like to learn from them. If you were a caregiver in the past or are currently a caregiver, you can help by teaching us about your experience through our Caregiver Support Survey.
Who do we mean by a caregiver? A person who gives unpaid care to someone who has a physical or mental health condition, or who is chronically ill or frail, either at home or in a facility. Caregivers may be spouses, adult children or in-laws, parents, siblings, youth, extended family members, friends, neighbours, or family of choice. (Source: Caregivers Nova Scotia)
The survey is short and will only take minutes for you to complete, but your answers will provide important insight into your role as a caregiver. The information from this survey will be collected confidentially and anonymously, meaning we will obtain no identifying information through your responses. Hospice PEI intends only to use the information gathered from this survey to better support caregivers on Prince Edward Island.
