Bonnie Schroeder knows caregiving! In fact, she comes from a long line of caregivers watching her mother move from one caregiving relationship to another (At one time, her mom was caring for both her aging and ailing parents, a foster son and several neighbours!). Her mother’s caring capacity has inspired her to do more – to care more – to make a difference!
Bonnie is a social worker and program consultant for health and social service agencies who serve seniors and their caregivers. Prior to consulting, Bonnie was the National Director of Caregiving at VON Canada and the District Executive Director of VON Eastern Ontario and Quebec. In her personal life, Bonnie is a partner, mother of two beautiful girls and avid cookbook reader in search of the next recipe to master!
Aging in Ottawa is very much an extension of Bonnie’s personal and professional experience. Join her as she celebrates the lives of older adults and talks with other leading experts about what really matters for older adults and their caregivers in our community.
