Mission
To promote positive partnerships between Caregivers and the healthcare community to ensure mutual respect, communication, and compassion.


About the program
As part of the Hills of Headwaters Collaborative, our Community Wellness Council identified unpaid caregiver identification as their #1 priority. As a result, our Collaborative developed the Caregivers in the Hills program to identify unpaid caregivers in Dufferin County and Caledon. The purpose of the identification badge is to validate and recognize the role of unpaid caregivers as they assist in the care of their loved one(s).

Caregivers in the Hills is of no cost to its members and is currently welcoming applications from all unpaid caregivers in Dufferin County and Caledon. Upon applying, each member will be supplied with their own unique Caregivers in the Hills identification badge. The badge may be used in health and social care settings to clarify your role as a caregiver to providers. The badge may also be used when visiting participating businesses in our community for discounts and benefits.

If you are an unpaid caregiver, please fill out the application below and one of our representatives will be in touch.


Caregivers Wishlist
Our Community Wellness Council conducted two focus groups with past and present caregivers where lived experience was used to create a wish list of what this program could look like in our community. These wishes were captured in the below visual map. At the forefront are the wishes to feel validated, to simplify the caregiving process and to improve navigation, along with the importance of being recognized as part of the circle of care for their loved one.
