Care for the caregiver: bringing low barrier ACT to those caring for people with dementia in New Brunswick

Each province and territory in Canada has recognized one program or individual within its borders with an Award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care. People First Radio presents a series of conversations with a number of the recipients from across Canada.

In New Brunswick the award went to a trio that’s working to bring support to caregivers of people with dementia, very often family members like children or spouses.

Dr. Pam Durepos, Chandra MacBean, and Nicole Cormier are leading a pilot project to provide Acceptance and Commitment Therapy remotely to Family Caregivers.

Durepos and MacBean spoke with People First Radio about the project, and about some of the relationships between family caregivers and our healthcare system.
