Our 5th (!) CARF Survey…!

Hey Everyone:

Our intrepid reporter, Amit Ghosh, got a chance to sit down with Linda Siino from CARF to talk about accreditation, CARF and how it impacts Community Connections Support Services. Linda, Colleen and Paul (in the West Kootenays) were here the week before last surveying the organization.

More info about CARF is here. Check out the video below and hit us up with any other questions you may have. Thanks to Amit, Linda and Kathy for making this happen.

Kelowna: Community Support is Changing…

Hi everyone:

We just want to let you know that community support in Kelowna is changing. We have in the past had a combination one-to-one, small group and large group activities for the people that we serve in community support. We are changing the support model to either one-to-one or global (group) which means that you will have to make a choice about how your community support services are delivered to you.

Our intrepid reporter, Amit Ghosh, interviewed Joel Gunther (service coordinator) and yours truly to get more information and explain the changes happening over the summer. Check out the video below. We will be also sending around a letter with your options and will be chatting with you about these changes. If you still have questions, make sure you check in with your Community Support Worker.

Special thanks go out to Kathy Herbert (behind the camera) who put this fantastic video together for everyone. Thanks Kathy! Thanks Amit!
