Hey everyone, check out this special edition of the Laurel posAbilities Newsletter — and keep an eye out for Roy’s experiences with our community support on page 2! Way to go, guys!
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:
CSWs will make individual appointments (1:1) with people on their caseloads who would be most negatively affected by going without support 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. Wash your hands and encourage the person we support (PS) to wash theirs often 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 Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help Keep an eye on our website for any info that we come across that may help.

This will likely affect the Kelowna community support team more any others.
Please stay safe and be well. Jackie and Brian Photo by Alachua County
