Caregiver, Supporter or Family Member

Caregiver, Supporter or Family Member

How we help you

Anyone who is a caregiver, supporter or family member to someone with a cancer diagnosis is welcome to become a Wellspring Alberta member – free of charge and without referral.

Participating in this vibrant, supportive community gives you access to a wide range of resources, programs, speakers and events. Best of all it gives you a safe landing place among friends… people who understand that caregivers and supporters also need help balancing their own wellness with the needs and demands of caring for a loved one with cancer.


As a caregiver, you are providing sole or significant help to someone living with cancer. Caregivers may be partners, family members or close friends.


As a supporter, you may be providing help to someone in a less official capacity. Supporters are typically family members or friends.

Family Member

Cancer impacts everyone in the family. Family support is also available for children.

What to expect

At Wellspring, you are part of a compassionate and understanding community. Here, you will have the opportunity to talk with others who have been through cancer, to access experts, and to share knowledge and experience in a warm, safe, encouraging and non-clinical environment.

Every person who visits Wellspring is unique. Our peer support volunteers can work with you to identify program options that will best meet your particular needs. Or you can peruse our programs or self-paced resources yourself, to find what works best for you.
