An Introductory Workshop to CareMaps: October 15, 2018

Discover how CareMaps can help you understand and improve your family’s experience.

TWO Sessions:   2:00-4:00pm   and   6:00-8:00 pm in Toronto.        
Limited to 25 persons per session

You’re invited to learn about the concept of Care-Maps — a drawing of the people and services in your care network. CareMaps can help you better understand and manage your own situation, identify missing resources, and describe your needs to others.

In this two-hour workshop, you will learn to create and use your own CareMap.

An Atlas CareMap is a diagram of a person’s care ecosystem, showing who cares for whom, and how. Many people have found it easy to learn to draw and use CareMaps, and valuable to do so. The process of thinking about and drawing a CareMap has helped people to more clearly see and to better understand their existing care ecosystem. For many, this has led to action and/or changes in perception resulting in stronger ecosystems, better care and more confidence in managing their care situation.
