Report – Caregivers in Distress: More Respite Needed

This report on respite programs found that one-third of unpaid caregivers in B.C. are in distress, one of the highest rates in Canada. Respite is one of the most fundamental supports and is offered to B.C. caregivers through three provincially funded programs. However, as the report details, there are major gaps in the way respite is offered in the province.
