How will we do our work?
Through literature review and environment scan, we will develop an understanding of what currently exists in Nova Scotia, and other jurisdictions, by way of targeted services for family/friend caregivers as well as identify the factors that may limit access or use of services. In addition, insights from family/friend caregivers and those who work with them will be collected through focus groups and surveys. For more information go to project activities.
