Community Support Events Cancelled (Coronavirus (COVID-19))

Hi all:

It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that all group events (community support, etc) are cancelled until further notice.

Notes going forward:

  1. CSWs will make individual appointments (1:1) with people on their caseloads who would be most negatively affected by going without support
  2. Please be mindful of where you go (no public spaces (malls, fitness facilities, etc) except a walk at the park, etc) – safe, wide open spaces only.
  3. Wash your hands and encourage the person we support (PS) to wash theirs often
  4. If the PS or their CSW are unwell or there is a risk of exposure, err on the side of caution and cancel the appointment
  5. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help
  6. Keep an eye on our website for any info that we come across that may help. (direct link: https://commconn.ca/category/coronavirus-covid-19/ )

This will likely affect the Kelowna community support team more any others.

Please stay safe and be well.
Jackie and Brian

Kelowna: Community Connections Groups!

Hey everyone:

Thanks to all for your patience as we have moved to two branches of our Community Support delivery: one-to-one and group services. In doing so, we hope to deliver services in ways that meet your needs better.

Thanks to Amit, Joel and Kathy (behind the scenes) who put together this excellent video that describes the groups we have going on as well as openings that we have in each of them. Please check it out below and ask your Facilitator at CLBC for more information about the groups that we have to offer and a referral if it sounds good to you!

See ya out there!
