The Learning Toolkit for Family Caregivers has been designed for adult learners with Level 2 skills in Ontario’s Literacy and Basic Skills program.

This curriculum resource embeds the Skills for Success and aligns with the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). At the end of each Unit, there is a chart

that aligns the tasks to OALCF Competencies, Task Groups, and Level Indicators. The Learning Toolkit for Family Caregivers can be used in small groups, classrooms or 1-to-1 tutoring sessions.

The Learning Toolkit for Family Caregivers is divided into seven units:

1. Overview of Family Caregivers in Ontario

2. Your Journey as a Family Caregiver

3. The Benefits of Being a Family Caregiver

4. Caregiver Challenges

5. Finding Support for Your Family and Friends – and for Yourself!

6. Family Caregivers and the Skills for Success

7. Tips to Reduce Caregiver Stress

Literacy practitioners can deliver all seven Units as one learning package to adult learners. Alternatively, they can just deliver the Units of most interest and value to learners.
