To promote positive partnerships between unpaid Caregivers and the health care community to ensure mutual respect, communication, and compassion.
As part of the Hills of Headwaters Collaborative’s Community Wellness Council identified unpaid caregiver identification as highest priority.
In response, our Collaborative developed the Caregivers in the Hills program to identify unpaid caregivers in Dufferin County and Caledon. The purpose of the identification badge is to validate and recognize the role of unpaid caregivers as they assist in the care of their loved one(s).
Caregivers in the Hills is FREE to join and welcomes applications from all unpaid caregivers in Dufferin County and Caledon.
Each member is given a unique Caregivers in the Hills identification badge that may be used in health and social care settings to ensure care providers know you are a caregiver. In addition, participating businesses in Dufferin-Caledon may offer discounts and benefits when the badge is presented.
Please fill out the application form and one of our representatives will be in touch.
Our Community Wellness Council conducted two focus groups with past and present caregivers where lived experience was used to create a wish list of what this program could look like in our community. A visual map captures the list, beginning with a wish to feel validated, to simplify the caregiving process and to improve navigation, highlighting the importance of being recognized as part of the circle of care for their loved one.
