About us

L’Appui pour les proches aidants d’aînés was created in 2009 to help improve the quality of life of those providing care to older adults by facilitating their daily tasks and ensuring that they take full advantage of available resources.

We have a strong presence throughout Quebec, thanks to 17 regional Appui offices and a specific agreement for the Cree Territory of James Bay. Each regional office supports local organizations promoting caregivers’ well-being and providing services adapted to their needs.

Each region manages its own fund and invests in a variety of direct services for caregivers of older adults.


Caregiver Support is a free and confidential phone consultation, information and referral service for the caregivers of older adults, as well as friends and family, practitioners and health care professionals.
