Thousands of young Quebecers support a family member or friend who is physically or mentally ill by providing care or performing tasks that they are no longer able to do themselves. According to Statistics Canada, one-quarter of people aged 15 to 29 would do this in some way, whether it’s running errands for their grandfather, keeping their mother comfortable while she’s undergoing chemotherapy, cheering up their depressed roommate or dressing their developmentally disabled sister.
