Type 1 Diabetes Parent Support Group Edmonton

Are you a parent feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities of caring for a child living with Type 1 Diabetes? You’re not alone.

We understand the unique challenges you face and are here to offer guidance, understanding, and a shoulder to lean on.

Our parent group provides a supportive environment where you can freely express your concerns, fears, and triumphs among individuals who truly understand what you’re going through. Through shared experiences and mutual encouragement, you’ll gain a sense of belonging and empowerment that can make a world of difference in your journey.

Led by experienced facilitators, Kayla Chorley, CCC & Counselling Therapist, and Dr. Tracy De Boer, R. Psych., who live with T1D and specialize in diabetes management and mental health support, our sessions cover a range of topics tailored to the needs of parents like you. From coping strategies and stress management techniques to practical tips for navigating healthcare systems and advocating for your child’s needs, we’re here to equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to thrive.

Joining our parent group is more than just attending another meeting—it’s about forging meaningful connections with others who share your experiences and are committed to supporting each other every step of the way. Whether you’re seeking emotional support, practical advice, or simply a listening ear, you’ll find it here among friends who understand and care.
