Oasis events

The Oasis in Kanata is pleased to announce we have set up a Caregiver Matters support group on Facebook.  This private group is meant to provide a safe and confidential space for caregivers to support each other.  It is a substitute for the Caregivers Matters monthly support group that is currently not able to meet due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The group will be monitored to ensure rules of conduct are being upheld.  Topics will be posted occasionally by a member of The Oasis in Kanata program committee to spark discussion.  However, the space is meant for members to post their own thoughts, feelings, and questions for response by other caregivers of people living with mental illness.

If you are a caregiver and would like to join this group, click here and request to join by clicking on the Join button.  After answering a few questions and reading the terms and conditions, the Administrator will approve your request as soon as possible.
