What We Offer

BSOSS presents an educational series of 4-6 evening seminars twice a year with guest speakers who will provide information about one or more aspects of caregiving. These sessions are designed to offer resources and support for unpaid caregivers.

If you provide unpaid support for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems, you are a caregiver.

The daily or periodic involvement of caring for a family member, partner or friend who is ill, frail or disabled can be an overwhelming experience and potentially change one's personal, family and social life. By receiving information from our speakers we hope to assist you in finding solutions, managing stress of caregiving and improving your quality of life.

Our NEXT Educational Series will be presented in the Spring of 2018.
