The #SolidairementProcheAidant (#Solidarity Caregiver) tools, created by the psychosocial intervention team of L’Antr’Aidant, are inspired by the experiences and realities of caregivers.

The microsite revolves around the reality of caregiving and is aimed at those who support individuals with intellectual or physical disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorders.

These tools are designed to encourage reflection, dialogue, knowledge development, and network strengthening.

You are just one click away from finding answers to your questions!

Each tool that you can consult (pdf format) has two distinct parts. On the first page, we expose the reality, the issue, or the challenge experienced by informal caregivers. Then, on page 2, we offer you strategies aimed at well-being or even questions allowing informal caregivers to develop their potential for self-determination. To complement these two parts, we suggest a video in support of the #SolidairementProcheAidant (#Solidarity Caregiver) tool capsule (available in French only).
