L’Appui Mauricie kicked off its first Virtual Caregivers and Seniors Show on Sunday.
Reproducing a physical show on a Web platform, this event will bring together nearly 60 exhibitors and 34 workshops and conferences that will be broadcast on the Show’s Facebook page.
“This is a first in Quebec. We are clearing virgin land that has incredible potential. Many eyes are on us. Moreover, we are already challenged by other regions who want to take over the platform in order to offer their population a Salon for Seniors or a Virtual Caregiver’s Fair, ”says Christine Gagné, caregiver and administrator at l’Appui Mauricie. .
This innovative project will allow visitors to discover new services and products that will help them in their daily lives, even during a pandemic.
“Thanks to this virtual fair, we will be able to further develop our clientele and reach caregivers who are less inclined or who do not have the time to participate in exhibitions that take place at a given time in a specific location,” says Pierre. Morissette, president of l’Appui Mauricie. We think, for example, of the sandwich generation, those people in their fifties who are the old age of their parents, but who still have children at home. “
L’Appui Mauricie invites Mauritians to visit salondesaidant.ca and to subscribe to the Facebook page of the Caregivers and Seniors Fair, in order to find content that is both informative and entertaining.
