About Caregivers Alberta  

Caregivers Alberta is a registered charitable organization (as Alberta Caregivers Association) whose mission is to empower caregivers and promote their wellbeing through support, information, education and leadership.   

The Opportunity 

Alberta currently has almost 1 million family members or friends caring for a loved one due to illness, disability or aging. We know that the contributions of family caregivers dwarf the contributions of our formal health system – amounting to over 80% of care outside the clinical setting - and yet they remain widely unacknowledged and unsupported. This puts a significant portion of the population at risk of caregiver burnout: mental, physical and emotional health distress that can lead to the possibility of caregivers becoming patients themselves. Caregivers Alberta is working to change that in partnership with community organizations across the province.  

 

Reporting to the Executive Director, the Program Manager is a pivotal team member in expanding programs and services to caregivers throughout Alberta through a collaborative, partnership lens anchored by developmental evaluation. Advocating for broad social impact, our services are based on four pillars: 
1. Recognition and inclusion of family caregivers as partners in care, based on the philosophy of patient and family centered care, 
2. Education for family caregivers and health professionals, 
3. Caregiver Support: direct 1-1, group and online services, 
4. Ongoing advocacy for caregivers and caregiver issues.
