Caring Circle has a newly opened Resource Centre with helpful staff and a myriad of Health Care information – located in the heritage cottage behind the library, on beautiful Bowen Island
The Caring Circle Health Resource Centre was established by a group of health professionals and concerned Bowen Islanders to assist people of all ages living on Bowen Island to obtain the health care support required for them to live with a sense of well-being and safety in their homes as long as they choose.
Download our new Emergency Information form here.
Please complete your Emergency Medical Information Form with all of the relevant information, then place in a prominent place in your house for Emergency Medical Personnel.
Caring Circle has had discussions about the fact that often emergency personnel such as Fire and Ambulance come into a home and the person might be so ill, unresponsive or unconscious and unable to tell responders who your family/emergency contacts are and what critical health information they might need to know.
Please help Bowen’s emergency crews by having this sheet displayed prominently on your fridge or somewhere obvious in your home where they can find it in an emergency.
Thanks and please call us at 947-9100 if you have any questions.
Welcome to the Bowen Threshold Singers – a new program for Bowen Island
The Bowen Threshold Singers are women who offer singing to bring ease and comfort to anyone in need of it, especially at the bedside of those who are seriously ill or dying. In groups of two to four we sing gentle songs from a variety of traditions. We sing when invited and come as often as requested, in private homes, hospices, care facilities and hospitals. We freely give our gift of singing, however donations are graciously accepted to support our work. Contact Shasta Martinuk for more information and to request a visit.
The Crossing Over Singers are a group of Bowen men offering the same service. Their contact is Brian Hoover.
Bowen Threshold Singers and Crossing Over Singers are affiliated with the International Threshold Choir movement.
