Our mission

To improve living conditions for caregivers assisting sick, vulnerable adults and/or seniors living with a loss of physical and/or cognitive autonomy.

L’Antr’Aidant’s mission is to help improve living conditions for caregivers of adults and seniors throughout the Laurentians by:

offering a place where caregivers can obtain information, referrals, support and accompaniment matching their unique situations;
offering an attentive ear and suggesting ways to break the isolation of caregivers;
sharing and enhancing caregivers’ knowledge and skills through formative awareness-raising activities;
encouraging and supporting the participation of caregivers in the organization’s mission and decision-making;
promoting mutual aid and support among the caregiver community and encouraging recruitment of volunteers;
raising awareness of the reality of caregivers among health and social services professionals, public authorities and the general public.

“Because there are only four types of people in this world:

  • Those who have been caregivers;
  • Caregivers;
  • Those who will be caregivers;
  • Those who need a caregiver!”

Rosalynn Carter
