Strøm Foundation | Caregiver

October 28th, 2020 by Strøm Spa Nordique


We all know someone, directly or indirectly, who devotes themselves to a loved one daily. And these peer supporters and caregivers deserve to be taken care of in return. We wanted to thank these courageous and inspiring people through the creation of the Strøm Foundation – Caregiver program.

Caregivers are always there, present, attentive, and caring. They support a loved one, a parent, or a spouse through difficult times, embodying balance in the face of adversity. They are a source of comfort for those who struggle every day. For those people who give so much without expecting anything in return, the Foundation was established so that they can enjoy a moment of their own. We would like to be at their side as much as we can, welcoming them to allow them to recharge their batteries, energize, and refocus, so that they can continue to offer what is most precious: balance, courage, and serenity.

Caregiving in a few words


According to the Act to Recognize and Support Caregivers, a caregiver refers to: “Any person who provides support to one or more members of his or her entourage who have a temporary or permanent disability of a physical, psychological, psychosocial or other nature, regardless of their age or living environment, with whom he or she shares an emotional bond, whether familial or not.” A caregiver may therefore take care of an aging parent suffering from a loss of autonomy, a child with a disability, a sick friend, or a neighbour who was the victim of an accident.


  • In Quebec, more than 1 in 4 people are caregivers.
  • More than 50% of caregivers devote more than 5 hours per week to taking care of the care recipient.
  • Most caregivers in Canada are women.
  • Caregivers provide 85% of care for seniors.
  • To devote more time to the care recipient, 64% of caregivers have reduced their social or relaxation activities.

L’équilibre des proches aidants | prendre soin de ceux qui prennent soin

November 18th, 2019 by La Presse +

Une réalité omniprésente, des appellations multiples, un devoir constant et parfois croissant et des actions quotidiennes qui en disent plus que le titre auquel elles appartiennent. Au Québec, plus d’une personne sur quatre agit comme proche aidante. Malgré tout, ce rôle demeure méconnu. En cette semaine nationale des proches aidants, l’occasion est belle pour poser […]
