Financial Support for Caregivers

Fact sheet


This fact sheet is part of an upcoming series designed to inform those working with caregivers and decision makers, about the support resources available to caregivers. It provides a summary of the financial support available in Quebec for caregivers while raising awareness of the challenges that they face in accessing it, and finally the impact that this support can have. The document proposes some possible solutions for caregivers and for decision makers.

This fact sheet is the result of a collaboration between the Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology (CREGÉS) and the Observatoire québécois de la proche aidance, which are part of the Directorate of Academic Affairs and Research Ethics of the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS COMTL). It is based on the results of literature reviews conducted by CREGÉS as part of a provincial mandate granted by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) to CIUSSS COMTL.
