Carrefour des femmes de Saint-Léonard

This organization receives funding from L'Appui

Introduction

The Carrefour des femmes de Saint-Léonard is a place to connect that fosters the involvement and solidarity of women. It focuses on personal growth and social change.

Many women must look after their spouse or parents experiencing loss of autonomy. To combat the distress that many caregivers of seniors experience, we implemented the project “Être aidante est-ce naturel?” [Is it natural to be a caregiver?], which provides specific services for caregivers.
