Dick's Story

Dick Strayer

As a caregiver, Dick Strayer knows what it is like to feel alone and not know where to turn. He is a founder of SCOA's Caregiver Information and Support Centre, a program that provides support for older adults who are caregivers. Through his work with the program, Dick spoke with hundreds of caregivers in Saskatoon and area. "One of the best medicines is for caregivers to talk to other caregivers. Caregivers experience feelings of loneliness and it is great to find out that you are not alone, that there is someone there to help and where you can get advice. "

Dick's vision for the future would be a provincial Caregiver program, training for caregivers and for people to know more about SCOA's work. "I devoted a lot of time to something that I truly believe in. It's had an effect on my life - no question.. " Dick gives to SCOA because . "I'm a firm believer in the cause and I have a tremendous amount of respect for the organization. They deserve all the support that I can give them. "
